 On Monday, January 16th, students in the Grade 12 and Advanced Placement World History courses at Trinity College School travelled to the library at Trent University in Peterborough to conduct research for their independent study projects (ISPs). The group was led by social sciences teacher Barb Brough and TCS librarian Shelagh Straughan.

With topics ranging from the “Treaty of Versailles” to the “Cultural Revolution in China,” this was a great opportunity for students to use an academic library. Students had access to more than 600,000 volumes in the Bata Library’s print collection. They spent their time finding and examining texts, reading and making notes for their papers.

This trip has become an annual event that many students find quite useful as they work towards completing their ISPs.
