You will need to log in to Google Apps with your log in to access the document.

Print Books:
We pulled books for you (don't get used to this!) so you could concentrate on reading and collecting information for your websites . They are on a cart in the lower library on the right. You can photocopy what is permissible according to copyright law and you can check the books out for overnight loans (2PM-7:30AM next day).
We've only pulled a few print books. The rest will mostly be in the 940.53 through 943 section (non-fiction and reference), with Holocaust-related books at 940.5318.

You will need to log in, and I can't post the log on info on this page because it it public, but if you just go to the database page (UN & PW on p. 41 of your planner), it is listed there. I also posted on Library Moodle Quarter 3. 
Before going to the database page, be sure to check your NCHS planner on p.41 for user name & password information
