  • CyberLibrary Portage Public Schools High Schools

    The Portage Public School system is fortunate enough to have some incredible resources at their students' disposal. These include databases purchased for the school, as well as helpful searching and media production hints developed by your Portage Public Schools media specialists. Since some of these (especially the ones that you see when you click the binoculars icon) are licensed, you may need to use the logins that you received at school. If you have forgotten these--we know, it happens--come to the library information desk and show us your current PPS student ID and we can assist you in accessing these resources. We are sorry, but we cannot give this information without the ID, over the phone, or via email, as that violates the user agreement between schools and vendors.
