Resources from the LMTC

Did you know that a search engine like Google only searches part of the internet?  There are many high quality resources that Google does not search.  Be sure to get in the habit of checking our school's subscribed information and research tools, such as World Book Encyclopedia, Encyclopedia BritannicaBrainPOP, Safari Montage, and the Magazine Search database.  You can find links to these resources and more on the LMTC Tools for Research page.

Please note: most of these resources will work only in our school buildings or when you are logged on to WebNet at home.
