Curated Resources for Classes in the Library Today

Welcome to the Library!


Period 1 – HSP3U1-11

Ms. Belevski’s HSP class is coming in to work on the Mental Health Case File. For this assignment, you’ll need quality resources from different areas. The Library’s Mental Health print collection is fairly well established, covering many different topics that will be helpful.

To access them, use our Catalogue; found on the Virtual Library. The Catalogue also provides you access to streaming video and other electronic resources. When off site,  you’ll need to log in with your TDSB information.

Other digital sources can be found in the following slideshow but Advanced Placement source might be the most important.


Another valuable source would be the Vanier Institute of the Family, which has an awful interface but excellent research on mental health and its impact upon families.

Period 2 – CHV2O1-13

Today Ms. Belevski class will continue work on the YPI project, one of the most important components of the Civics course.


Today you are focusing on Peer Review. We suggest you look at the IB Judge’s Criteria here.

The Youth and Philanthropy Initiative’s wesbite ( would be a good place to continue researching your charity.

This Slider will help you learn to navigate a charity’s website to find useful information.

  • The donate page has lots of information about how to help an organization. This includes the financial data.
