Mr. Kelly has also added assets to the Delbarton Library Schoology group, creating handy, dedicated folders for specific topics that contain subject-specific resources in History, English, Science, Theology, World Languages, Art, and Physical Education. An added bonus: these resources can be copied into a specific class Schoology page, so an entire class will have easy access to a wide range of useful library resources.

Our Library’s Schoology page also offers a General Resources folder that contains all non-specific resources including links to NoodleTools, JSTOR, EBSCO, a directory of nearby public and academic libraries, Purdue OWL links, and APOSTLE/resource evaluation tools.

Delbarton also provides access to the daily The Wall Street Journal Online and The New York Times Online. Students, look for an email soon from Mr. Kelly on how to create a personal account to access these daily resources. Finally, Mr. Kelly encourages students and faculty members to contact him via email at JKelly@delbarton.org with your specific resource requests. Kelly himself is a valuable library asset and a wonderful resource for all.
