Database Research and Literacy Studio
Located on the 2nd floor of the H.J. Sabbagh Library, the Database Research and Literacy Studio supports and promotes reading and research activities in our community. The staff is available to assist Middle School and Academy students in finding the reading resources they need to develop a love of reading and to research the topics they would like to learn more about.
From one-on-one sessions to seminars and workshops, the Database Research and Literacy Studio helps Middle School and Academy students find valid and relevant information for independent projects, curriculum research papers and extended essays. Students are also able to find reading level appropriate fiction and non-fiction articles and books for their pleasure and their learning.
