Online Resources

Our library online resources stand apart from commercial search engines, by providing ad-free search results and credible information from many sources not available on the open Internet.  In addition the content pages provided by these subscriptions do not have the many attention-stealing links to sensational content that discourage quality, focused work. This is the destination for the student who wishes to accomplish work of high quality while managing a busy schedule of school activities, friendships and academic assignments.

REMEMBER:  Online resource passwords can be found on the student public drive in the library folder

You will need these passwords to access these resources from home. 

my.hpisd.org will take you to the portal and allow you to access your drive and the student public drive.
