My Nevada State Project is due tomorrow!! Help!!


It’s 9 P.M. and the library is now closed, but your Nevada project is due tomorrow. Now what?

Check out the America the Beautiful online resource located under Databases A-Z from the Library’s homepage. This resource is available to all Nevadans with a Nevada library card!

The teacher only wants facts, so you don’t want to look through pages of information. What now!

Well, after you click on Nevada from the map, just look on the left hand side of the page for the links in red.Nevada ATB

Ok, you found it. Great! Now all you have to do is click on Fast Facts. What is so cool about this is, you can simply scroll down the page and just copy the information that you need.

Oops, you remember, you must include pictures in your report. Ok, still not a problem. If you are using the computer to type your assignment, simply scroll across the picture with your mouse until you see the hand. Next, just click on the right hand side of the mouse and you should see a box pop up. Ok, scroll down to Copy image and then click.

Got it? Great!

Now go back to the page you are working on and place your cursor where you want your picture. Ok, you did! Now, click the right hand side of the mouse again to get the box to pop up. Next, just click Paste. The picture should appear in that space. Are you smiling now?

Not using the computer to type the report. Still not a problem! Just draw the picture on your paper, or just print the page and cut the image out and paste the picture into your report.

You also just remembered, you need a famous Nevadan. Another cool thing about this database is that you can just click on Profiles from the red links to get a list of famous Nevadans. How cool is that?
