Swain Library News

Middle and Upper School September Edition

Welcome to the new Dr. Barbara Olin Taylor Learning Commons!

Welcome to the ‘new’ library! So many changes have taken place to our physical space. Our goal remains the same...to build collaborative partnerships with students and teachers. We have many resources that we invite you to use, including our two new conference/tech rooms and 20 MacBook Pros. Please know that we are available to help collaborate on projects or assist in the teaching of research skills. Visit the Swain Library website or the Swain Library LibGuides for more information. Looking forward to working with you!


Turnitin is a cloud based service that checks students' work for originality and plagiarism. If you would like an account, please email Kathy McNeiece and you will be set up. To learn more about turnitin, please visit the teacher resources section of our LibGuides or visit their site.
