The Library & Media Center offers our patrons access to a variety of print and electronic materials. Some materials are availabe in both print and electronic. Some of these materials are available physically on site and then electronically offsite through the Gale Virtual Reference Library (GVRL) and the Salem Press Online.
During Freshmen year, all these resources are gone over during the 9th grade orientation given to Language Arts classes. They are also readily available as a handout with a brief description in the library. They are gone over again when teacher's start research projects.
Gale Virtual Reference Library
Gale Virtual Reference Library is a database of encyclopedias and specialized reference sources for multidisciplinary research. These reference materials once were accessible only in the library, but now you can access them online from the library or remotely 24/7. Because each library creates its own eBook collection, the content you see may vary if you use the database at different libraries (your school, your public library, or your office).
GALILEO is a doorway to a wealth of information. Through it you can potentially access over 150 databases indexing thousands of periodicals and scholarly journals. Over 7000 journal titles are provided in full-text. Other resources include an encyclopedia, business directories, a collection of over 10,000 full-text books and government publications. This service is provided by the state of Georgia so that all school systems have equal access across the state.
