Computer Use in the Library

homepage-computeruse.pngThe Tecumseh library has eight computer stations for student use, you can log in using your student number, and the password Student.
 
Using the WebCat (which is short for web catalogue), you can search for books in our library on any computer with Internet access.  You will need to tell WebCat to only search in our library.  To do this, click on the tab School Collections then click on Tecumseh Elementary.  You can then search on WebCat as you normally would.

 
 


 
Online Research in the Library
 

The Vancouver School Board provides all students with access to a “digital library”. The digital library is an excellent collection of resources such as World Book Online, The Canadian Encyclopedia, Student Research Center, Kids Search, Culturegrams and many more. These resources are wonderful sources of all kinds of information. They are especially helpful for doing research on a variety of topics. You can access these sources through the
VSB WebCat or by visiting our Research Skills page.
 
 
To use the databases that require a login, the Tecumseh student UserID is 39tc, and the password is library.
To visit the Province and Vancouver Sun databases on the WebCat, the login is tecpaper@vsb.bc.ca, and the password is library. You can even translate these papers into the language of your choice!


 
 


 
Volunteering at Tecumseh Library
 

monitors-3.png
School libraries bring families, teachers, students, and books together.
Students interested in being a part of the library can visit the Library Monitor page for more information. For parents, being a part of something special at your child's school is easier than you think. There are lots of ways to volunteer in our school library.  Please see me in the library if you are interested in volunteering.


 



If you have any questions or concerns about the library please feel free to contact our Teacher-Librarian.
