Welcome to the CMS Library Media Center
Our mission for the CMS Library Media Center is to proivide staff and students with:
- A current collection of resources and materials to support academic needs
- A comfortable and safe environment to support teaching and learning
- Support of teaching and learning through collaboration with teachers
The Library Media Center provides a comfortable and engaging place for students to access and create media. Wi-Fi is accessible throughout the building at all times, and students have access to laptops through a stay at school one-to-one laptop model at all times of the day throughout the building. There are currently over 600 Dell laptops throughout the building for approximately 550 students. It is our goal to help integrate this abundant technology into the curriculum for staff and students.

Book List for A&E students
Annotated list of books in the CMS library with a more challenging reading level.
This is a GREAT collection of databases, free to use from anywhere you have Internet access in the state of Indiana. The place to go for biographies, topic searches, magazine and newspaper articles, and more.
Hint: it's best to go directly to the database you want to see, rather than using Inspire's interface. Use EbscoHost for magazines and newspaper articles, and Biography Resource Center for biographical information.
