Data Retrieval Resources:

  • Destiny–  Parents and students can now access the collection of school’s Media Center via the Internet in the comfort of their home or office. Destiny is an automated library system providing quick and easy access to the Media Center’s 30,000 titles. Students may search for materials by author, title, subject, series, and keyword. Materials are selected to provide students with a broad selection for pleasure reading, to address personal interests or to supplement the academic curriculum. Users may click on the links to some great websites, so visit and see what the excitement is all about.
  • Internet Access – Internet access is provided to students through Cumberland County Schools. Bibliographies of websites pertaining to academic curriculum are available and can be accessed on all computers in the Media Center and Computer Lab. All Internet research done in the building must be subject/classwork related and not for personal use (i.e. personal business, shopping, chat room, games, etc.)
  • Bibliographic Instruction – Students are invited to the Media Center for both formal and informal instruction. Classes are scheduled routinely to learn about specific information resources. Students are also invited to come before and after school, during lunch and with a teacher’s pass for assistance with papers, resumes, scholarships, power point, word processing, etc.
  • NCWise Owl–  is another online database that students can use for research. It is funded by Department of Public Instructions and is available for all public and charter schools in North Carolina.
