Students are encouraged to use the library, both for borrowing and accessing materials on-site. Library staff assist students with finding reference materials and using databases. Materials not available in the library can be ordered through an inter-library loans system.


Teachers can reserve materials for courses by contacting the library staff. Library materials necessary for student reference can be placed on reserve for the duration of a course.

Teachers are requested to list reference sources in course descriptions and notify the library with the information.

Teachers are also encouraged to contact the library with suggestions for new purchases. All suggestions for improving the library and its resources are welcomed by the library director.

Teachers are advised to include book lists in the course descriptions published on the academy’s inner network, and to inform the library before the course begins.
