Middle School/Upper School Library
Grades 5 - 12 use the Middle/Upper School library. The students hone their writing skills in addition to their information and library skills (the art of searching for, selecting, and organizing information). The library’s collection contains 18,000 volumes. The catalog of titles may be accessed from any computer on campus. The students also have access to more than 40 online research databases, which provide up-to-date periodical services, general reference, and literary databases.
The school has a campus-wide network linking the 16 library computers with all classrooms and work areas. Additionally, there are three computer labs. Both the Middle and Upper School buildings run a wireless segment of the network for use with sets of classroom laptops. On the network, students have access to all the library resources, the internet (by way of the TVS Web server and a high-speed T1 line), and a wide range of software from graphing utilities and spreadsheets to subject-specific course programs. The second network is the backbone of the Upper School computer curriculum (see Math Department offerings).
