Which research skills do incoming freshmen need to be successful in college? Which of those skills are most difficult for them to master?
Starting November 12, Ohio’s 4th grade teachers have free access to a special collection of 160 eBooks through Scholastic’s Storia as part of a pilot program for the remainder of the 2014-15 school year. The 160 titles were specially chosen to support Ohio’s 4th grade standards in English, math, social studies, and science. The project is the next phase of INFOhio’s mission to provide free access to eBooks to all Ohio PreK-12 schools.
Ohio's New Learning Standards for English Language Arts/Literacy require teachers to provide students with frequent practice reading complex texts. Many educators, concerned that their students cannot comprehend complex text, feel at a loss for how to help them master the skill.

Today's student researchers (not to mention their teachers) are faced with a hard choice:
They can spend hours searching library catalogs and digital collections one by one to find quality information, which eats into the time they have for the more important work of analyzing, synthesizing, and creating. Or they can take a shortcut and search the Internet knowing that they risk finding resources that are inaccurate and possibly even unsafe.
But now, with the release of INFOhio's ISearch (http://isearch.infohio.org), students no longer need to make that choice. ISearch makes finding quality, vetted resources for school research much easier!
