Now Scheduling MackinVIA Orientations!

All scholars and teachers should now be able to sign into their personal MackinVIA account! Username and password for MackinVIA are our individual/standard GCISD login (minus the @gcisdstudents.net.) Need help getting your class logged in? Mrs. Berumen is HAPPY to come help your class get logged in and reading e-books!


Already logged in and ready to schedule an orientation lesson? E-mail Mrs. Berumen for a 45 minute slot! Scholars will learn how to find ebooks, access our databases, and download copyright friendly pictures!

Have you tried Britannica Image Quest?

Need copyright friendly images for you or your scholars school projects? We have access to over a million awesome photos through our Britannica Image Quest database! Download as many as you need free (and stress free!) from the Britannica Image Quest database found in your MackinVIA account!


Let's keep our scholars safe searching for images!
