Marrs and Verna McLean Library Complex
As students transition into the Middle and Upper Schools at Saint Mary’s Hall, the Marrs and Verna McLean Library Complex becomes their new home for research, information gathering, and learning. Saint Mary's Hall recognizes that today's world we live in requires innovative and creative technology to help students learn. We provide students with the latest technologies, giving them the tools they need to stay at the top of their class.
The Marrs and Verna McLean Library provides the following resources to students, faculty, and parents:
The most robust resource available to students and faculty in the Middle and Upper Schools is access to iLearning Commons (digital commons).
This one-stop-shop provides a vast array of digital access points and resources that can be accessed at any time, from any place with an internet connection.
Digital commons provides experiences akin to what students will experience in a university library setting.
In the Marrs and Verna McLean Library Complex, students use the iLearning Commons to access:
- More than 50 major databases
- Important research tools and help
- Summer reading information
With so many rapid changes in technology, it’s no surprise that students today learn differently than students 10 or even 20 years ago. Today’s students have a significant amount of digital resources available to them on a regular basis. Some of those resources include:
- Two satellite feeds with plasma displays for immediate world-wide news coverage
- Forty computer stations
- Wi-Fi connectivity for both PC and Mac platforms
- 12,000 eBooks for research and reference material
