We have subscribed to Classroom Video On Demand, a comprehensive streaming video subscription service for high schools, featuring unlimited access to educational programs that can be viewed in class, at the library, or from home. We downloaded the records for these videos into our Destiny Catalog. You can access them by searching the catalog (you can limit your search in Circulation Types to Movies) or by going the Library Databases/Online Resources Page in Mustangs Online.

Stand by for our new Zinio Subscription. We have discontinued our underused library print magazines and gone with a new digital service. You will be able to read our magazines on your computer, iPad or other device. We chose the magazines based on a poll taken in the high school last year. We should have this up and running in a week or two!

Digital Public Library of America – A New Database!

Digital Public Library of America

The Digital Public Library of America brings together the riches of America’s libraries, archives, and museums, and makes them freely available to the world. It strives to contain the full breadth of human expression, from the written word, to works of art and culture, to records of America’s heritage, to the efforts and data of science. The DPLA aims to expand this crucial realm of openly available materials, and make those riches more easily discovered and more widely usable and used, through its three main elements:

1. A portal that delivers students, teachers, scholars, and the public to incredible resources, wherever they may be. Far more than a search engine, the portal provides innovative ways to search and scan through the united collection of millions of items, including by timeline, map, virtual bookshelf, format, and topic.
2. A platform that enables new and transformative uses of our digitized cultural heritage. With an application programming interface (API) and maximally open data, the DPLA can be used by software developers, researchers, and others to create novel environments for learning, tools for discovery, and engaging apps.
3. An advocate for a strong public option in the twenty-first century.
