Expand your research for your extended essay

Just in time for DP1 students to begin their research for their Extended Essay projects, the ISB library is proud to present to you an amazing new resource! JSTOR Secondary Schools Collection is a database that will assist you in finding useful relevant articles to take your research to the next level.

We know that not all of your research is done while you are at school. That’s why the ISB has chosen to allow you access from anywhere you have internet access. All you need is the username and password. This will change from time to time, but these changes will be communicated to you via your school email account.

Meanwhile, for help getting started on your Extended Essay, watch the videos on how to write a good research question and how to search a database (like JSTOR).
