Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?
The Carrollton library and research program promotes an atmosphere of inquiry, critical thinking, personal and aesthetic growth - in support of a commitment and respect of intellectual values – and with a belief and eagerness to instill in our students a pure love of reading through creativity and enthusiasm.
Pursuing these values and to enhance information literacy and skills, a full range of resources, tools, and individual and group classes are available to all. This program strives to ensure that students, faculty, and staff effectively use these skills to draw conclusions, make informed decisions, and share their knowledge and understanding with others as active, ethical and informed participants in our society.
These objectives are met by accessing information in all formats including the books on the shelves, electronic databases, the Internet, and multimedia resources. Throughout, instruction and guidance - integration of innovative uses of technology are utilized to pursue these objectives, and always, the love of reading - for intellectual curiosity, is fostered.
|Bibliographic instruction is taught by the Librarians in a logical progression as part of the curricula.

|Curating the collection, includes adding new and relevant items in print and digital formats while identifying titles that are removed from the collections to include multiple copies, outdated materials, etc., are just the initial first steps in managing the collections. Linking data and information using print and digital resources to include databases, webpages, video streaming of a variety of documentaries, and digital reference guides for classroom projects visualized using LibGuide software in coordination with teachers and students and librarians. Review is an ongoing task, along with a regular and timely analysis and curation with continuing recommendations from our faculty ensures we will always have the most comprehensive collections for instruction, research, and study at Carrollton.|
