Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and your families. My gift to you and your students is a new high school library website, which will go live on January 5th. Hopefully, this new website will make locating and utilizing quality information easier for you and your students. I hope you take the time to explore the new site by clicking on the button below and let me know what you think.
MackinVIa is a complete eResource management system providing easy access to eBooks, audiobooks, educational databases and video. Users can view, utilize, and manage all of their eResources through their individual backpacks. Furthermore, MackinVIA allows simultaneous, unlimited access to multiple users and is mobile friendly.

Currently, we have a total of 75 audiobooks and eBooks housed on The username is barnesvillehs and the password is shamrocks. Backpacks have been set up for each student. When a student logs into his backpack, the username is his firstname.lastname and the password is his six-digit number that is used to login onto a computer. The backpacks allow students to check out items and store their notes, bookmarks and highlights.

At this time, I am working on getting Bloom's Literary Reference Online accessible through this system. Also, I will be adding resources to develop our electronic library collection. If you have any materials that you would like to see purchased for this collection, please contact me.
