More Reliable than Google?.... Subscription Databases!
 
Loudoun County Public Schools subscribes to the following online databases.
Obtain login information (User ID, Password, etc.) on pages 14 and 15 of your agenda.
You may also login to VISION and go to the Library's VISION course
(MS - FWS - Library Resources) to get the user IDs and passwords

Middle School - Online Resources
Almost all of these subscription resources and databases can be accessed from school without the need to log in. From home, however, you'll need to use a login name and/or password for most of them. LCPS students are given a printed brochure each year containing this information. The brochure is also available on the district's intranet site under Instruction->Instructional Services->Library Media Services. Just ask your school Librarian or TRT and they'll also be happy to tell you the login information or give you the brochure.
