Additionally you will note that there is a new link on the right hand side of the Virtual Library. This link has two functions. It allows families to request a Learnmark and provides an easy access point for students to login to the Learnmark with their TDSB login.
Here is a link to a Learnmark for families This version of the Learnmark is dynamic and we have added passwords to resources that vendors have temporarily opened up that can be found on the Virtual Library.
