~ Students can check the Library Canvas course for all the latest news and info. ~


Log into Destiny to find relevant print and online materials. Use your IUSD login - no at the end of your username. 

IUSD students have access to several information databases such as Encyclopedia Britannica, ProQuest, Gale science, ABC-CLIO (social science), National Geographic for Kids, etc. South Lake students also have special access to BrainPOP.
