The Oregon School Library Information System (OSLIS) is a state-funded program providing Oregon schools with access to quality resources supporting the information literacy curriculum. Through this program, students at Valley Catholic School have access to ebooks through the Gale Virtual Reference Library, as well as Gale electronic databases such as “PowerSearch” and “Opposing Viewpoints in Context.” Students can access these databases from the library’s Electronic Database page.
