Databases:

Databases links are now on the Home Page of every school's site after you login. Look for the VSB Library icon on your desktop (when you are on a school device) or use either the Destiny Discover app or  https://library.vsb.bc.ca when you are at home to get to the library system page.

Steps: 

  1. Get to "Shaughnessy Library"
  2. Login: both teachers and students need to login in order to see your library account or place books on hold. 

                   Teachers: Use the same username and password for VSB login         

                   Students: Use your student number and your TEAMS password                

  3. If you want to use the databases for research projects: go to the database you want to use.  Login to individual databases is no longer required if you are on the VSB network; if you are at home, you may be prompted to enter a username (39sy) and password (library) for most databases. Exceptions:  newspapers - username (vsbpaper@vsb.bc.ca) and password (library).       ***Please DO NOT share this login information publicly,  This is a condition of our license.***
