Library and Technology

The Learning Commons

The Learning Commons has become an oasis for quiet study, collaboration, creativity, and academic exploration. This innovative space is used by all Holy Angels constituents for presentations, meetings, workshops, and social gatherings. Students and faculty have access to 49 research databases 24/7, on campus and remotely. The technological capabilities of the Learning Commons help to promote global citizenship. 

 

During the school day, students skim reference books, research online databases or browse print books or e-books for their term papers, engage in Blackbaud, do their homework or discuss homework assignments with classmates, work collaboratively on class projects, read or study independently, or may receive help sessions to better develop the skills and strategies to efficiently and independently locate quality, relevant and timely information.  

The collection includes print and electronic materials. The Library subscribes to many print periodicals, journals and newspapers. It provides access to thousands more through full-text online databases, which contain digitized reference books, literary criticism, e-journals, e-books, primary source documents, newspapers, newsletters, pamphlets, book reviews, biographies, television and news transcripts from around the world, and multimedia, which include audio and video clips, images, and 3D resources. The AHA digital library website provides access to various digital resources tied to the school curricula, including class-specific and topical resource guides as well as a citation and copyright guides.

 

We provide academic research assistance in a variety of ways, including training and guidance in information literacy, reference and research strategy.  Please consult us for any reading recommendations and suggestions. 

 

Contact Mrs. Korvin and Mrs. Rossen, our Librarians, with any questions you may have.

Technology

As technology continues to change and advance, so too, will its use as an instructional tool and creative instrument. Using integrated technology, Holy Angels’ students learn to think critically, communicate effectively, access and analyze information in order to make educated and informed decisions, and work independently and with others to solve problems.

 

Using the latest in convertible notebook technology, the Fujitsu Lifebook provides students with the full functions of a laptop computer combined with a multi-touch screen which can be utilized as a tablet PC. Used as an instructional tool and a creative instrument, the tablet serves as an invaluable tool in helping students expand their understanding of the world and reach the fullness of their potential.
