Successful student outcomes happen at the library.
Learning starts in the classroom, but it doesn't end there. Today's students engage in active, academic learning just about anywhere. What they need — what you can deliver — is a dynamic, online library that meets them where they are and supports their academic objectives.
A complete library resource, customized for your school.
We have specialized services, a robust subscription list from premiere educational content vendors, and the ongoing support you and your staff need to make the most of your membership.
Whether you need a librarian for your school, a server that connects your students to their online educational resources beyond the campus, or a package of content tailored to your school's specific programs, we have the solution you need.
Our trusted staff helps you through accreditation.
Accreditation is an important process, but it doesn't have to be overwhelming. We developed our librarian services and products to help you meet the rigorous standards of accreditation.
Our librarian team has master's degrees from ALA-accredited programs and over 20 years of experience working with schools like yours. In addition to providing supplemental services and holistic staffing solutions, we can help you select the right resources and tell your accreditors how your library supports your students.
We're the right choice for your school.
