Forrester Research Paper Links
1/7/2015

These are the links and/or books I have to the Influential people on your list. They may view the e-books online from the library or from home. They may have to download a viewer but most of the time all they have to do is to click on the view HTML link. The library link can be found on the PHS website under the library page- choose Destiny Quest. I also included some Big Universe resources (some of these may be lower grade resources) and are also e- books plus we have encyclopedias as well.

*I will not let them check the library books out since there are several classes using them.
