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
All of these subscription databases and services can be accessed from school without the need to log in.  From home, however, you will 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, and it's available on the district's intranet web site under Instruction->Instructional Services->Technology and Library Resource.  You can also ask your school Librarian or TRT and they'll be happy to tell you.
