The NAI School Library provides students and staff access to over 11,000 physical items. The library catalog, NAI Destiny, allows patrons to search the collection of print and digital books. A wide variety of subscription databases are available to students, which provide access to academic journals, magazines, news stories, and more. TigerID provides direct access to both NoodleTools, our citation generation and research organization platform, and Sora, which provides access to more eBooks and audiobooks. These digital resources are available for use any time at school or at home, however, passwords are required when working remotely. Students can best access these resources through the NAI Library Blackboard page, where they will find passwords as well as specific course and project resource guides.
The librarian provides access to and instruction in the use of a variety of information sources, as information literacy and technology objectives are totally integrated with curricular objectives across disciplines. This is accomplished through collaboration and planning between the librarian and curricular area teachers. The library flexibly schedules classes as requested and accommodates large numbers of study hall students pursuing independent reading and research each day. Through these learning activities, students discover the wide applicability of information literacy and technology skills to all areas of study and develop the independent skills necessary to be successful in today's information-rich world. Each secondary library is staffed by a full-time certified librarian as well as a library secretary.
