The library/media center is a well equipped learning lab with the goal of supporting the curriculum needs of students and teachers. A wide range of materials is available and requests for additional materials are always welcomed.
Collaborative lesson planning is a major focus. Special emphasis is placed on research skills, including the Alabama Virtual Library, citing resources, and web page evaluation. We are anxious to collaborate with lesson planning in any area of the curriculum.
Students: NAME YOUR JUMP DRIVES!
Almost daily students leave jump drives in one of the library/lab computers. Unfortunately, many times they are taken by others and not returned. But when we find them we endeavor to return them to their owners.
First we look to see if the jump drive has been named. If not, then we look to see if there are any documents containing the student's name or some other identifying information which can be used to identify the owner.
The only way to prevent the permanent loss of your jump drive, of course, is to not leave it in the first place. But the next best thing to do is to make sure that it can be easily identified by naming it with your name.
To do so, simply access your jump drive by going to "my computer." Next, click only once on the name of the device. Wait a second and click on it again at which point you will be allowed to fill in your name, up to 11 characters.
Some jump drives do not allow users to rename them. In this case, simply create and save a word document on your jump drive which states that it is yours (state your name) and should be returned to you.
Also remember that when removing your jump drive from a computer to be certain to use the proper steps. Click on the jump drive icon in the bottom, right hand corner of the screen and work through the prompts to close the device. You will be given a final message telling you that it is safe to eject or remove the device from the computer. When jump drives are removed without using the proper protocol one runs the risk of losing any and all information that has been stored on the device.
