In roaming as a librarian, I sometimes come across excellent digital resources for free. We don't always have the time to meet and discuss is using them is a possibility, so I have started aggregating some of the links here, so teachers can peruse, use, and access any time.
These resources are shared because they cover relevant topics, are of good quality, are free, and intuitively accessible. As I encounter more resources, I will add them to this page.
If you are looking for any kind of resource for a class or lesson, please feel free to ask me for help. I have or can try and get access to various lending or digital networks and am happy to assist in locating useful material. It is my job to be helpful!
