Here is a quick search you can use to model how ISearch works.


1. Try
a search in the ISearch box above. Use the keywords Ohio history.

2. Explore the filters that you find along the left side of your screen when you click each of the tabs.

  • Can you find the format filter?
  • Can you find a subject filter?
  • Can you find a source type filter?
  • Which filters will be more useful to you and which filters will be more useful to your students?

Note: If you need a quick refresher on ISearch and filters, review the ISearch Video Tutorial for Teachers.
