Welcome to your Media Center!

The Media Center is located in the high school building, and is designed to be used by students, faculty and administrators at all levels of the Complex.  The goals of the Media Center are to enhance the following:
·    Access to diverse and appropriate collections
·    Access to facilities that support learning and research
·    Access to library literacy for lifelong learning
·    Technical processes that enhance access to collections
·    Collaborative linkages for working in a global community

In the Media Center, students are able to find the resources needed to complete classroom assignments and to satisfy curiosities about a wide range of personal interests. Collections are God-centered and designed to support the mission, vision and philosophy of the Complex. The Media Center holds over 12,000 volumes, in addition to magazines, DVDs, CDs, and electronic resources. There is a concentration of resources by and about Seventh-day Adventists, by and about African Americans, and general biography.

Information literacy instruction in the use of collections is provided by the librarian for classes and for individuals as needed. Collections are arranged according to the Dewey Decimal Classification and can be searched from the Adventist Education Complex online catalog.

The Media Center is bright and welcoming, and prepared to meet your information needs!
