On this page you will find a toolbox of tutorials and how-to guides to aid you if you are researching or looking for a library book.  Remember to visit your library if you need more assistance.


Searching databases are a bit different from regular Google searching.  Check out a few of the following tutorials to help you get started. There are also more detailed tutorials on the database page of the Virtual Library.

You can now download documents directly into your Google drive!  Simply click the “download” option in the toolbox to the right of the article you wish to save. Teachers may also share resources with students through Google classroom.  In addition, the “In Context” databases are aligned to the Ontario curriculum – teachers may choose the subject strand and browse through related resources.
