Mt. Lebanon HS Library

Gearing up for 2014-15!

Welcome Back!

Happy 2014-15 school year. We are busy getting the library ready for you and your students. If you are new to our building, please come and visit us-- we are STILL located on 2C, but hopefully not for too much longer. I am looking forward to working with you this year. Our library program is here to support your courses, your students and you. Have a great year!

WHAT'S NEW FOR THIS YEAR?

JSTOR-- an all-purpose database

JSTOR is a digital library founded in 1995. Originally containing digitized back issues of academic journals, it now also includes books, primary sources and current issues of journals. It provides full-text searches of almost 2,000 journals. Once accounts are created, you and your students will have full access through the HS library webpage.

And Speaking of New...

The new library is steadily moving along. As of right now, we anticipate moving near the end of the semester. We are working hard to ensure that our move will cause little interruption to our services to students and teachers. The new library will be located directly across from the cafeteria.

App Suggestions

The Basics

Study Halls

The library is open daily from 7:15AM to 3:30PM. Once the school day begins, students need a pass to come to the library during a study hall. Passes are only distributed in the library. If you are a study hall teacher, please sign and time stamp the pass that the student will bring to you and use the LIB code in PowerSchool. We check attendance every period and will let you know when there is a no-show.

Lunches

Students are permitted to come to the library during their lunch period after they are done eating in the cafeteria. If you are a cafeteria monitor, please sign their library pass before they leave. Occasionally, we allow students to bring their lunch and report directly to the library. However, these are usually special circumstances and we do not advertise this to the masses.

Classes

You are welcome and encouraged to bring your classes to the library. I am very willing to work with you and your students on research, technology and information literacy skills. Bored with a lesson? Let's revamp it with a new program or cool app. Believe it or not, we still have paper books for assigned or pleasure reading. Actually, we have 15,000 of them. Our schedule can be viewed online on the HS Library homepage. Please call (x12029) or email me to schedule. We can accommodate several classes at once.
