What is a Cybrary?
The word cybrary is a multifaceted and evolving term. In regards to the mission and vision of St. Agnes Academy – St. Dominic School, the term cybrary refers to the physical and virtual information collections and services provided to its students within, but not limited to, a physical space. The word cybrary represents a hybrid library, a concept that marries the physical library with the virtual library to create a new-age concept of library, technology and library services. The Cybrary at SAA-SDS is comprised of four integral components, the physical building and collection, the virtual collection, the professional library staff and the technology integrationists. These components work together to create an information center that offers students the opportunities to retrieve, evaluate and synthesize information in a way that is optimal to learning and achievement in a technological world. The services provided in the Cybrary encourage the development of skills that will produce an information literate community and promote lifelong learning.
The Cybrary is staffed Monday-Thursday 7:30am-4:00pm & Friday 7:30am-3:30pm. If other times are needed, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to make an appointment.
