Learning Commons

St. Joseph Learning Commons Staff:

Teacher-Librarian -Andrew Pentlow
Library-Technician -Lorraine Vleck

The mission of the Learning Commons is to teach all students to read for breadth and understanding, to research with purpose and process, to build knowledge with insight and responsibility with respect to Catholic values, and to transform their knowledge into wisdom for a lifetime of learning.

As a centre for collaborative learning and inquiry, reference and research, the Learning Commons encourages students to pursue projects, develop interests and skills, and become knowledgeable and informed members of society. The Learning Commons also offers opportunities for students to complete homework and read for pleasure in a relaxed and studious environment. Staff are available to facilitate the research process and help guide students on their quest for quality sources of information. Staff are also able to support students and staff with technological questions and recommend the best web tools for academic purposes.

The Learning Commons is a place where students can use technology to engage in the learning process, i.e. Smart board, eBooks, Chromebooks, iPads, Kobos.

Students may also search our collection of physical and electronic resources by using our Insignia integrated library system in the Student Portal.  Students login in to St. Joseph using their student number and network password.

Hours of Operation
The Learning Commons is available for quiet research and study from 8:00 am to 3:00 pm Monday to Friday including senior and junior lunch.

Fine Facts
Fines are set at 20 cents per day for each overdue book and $1.00 per day for each overdue Chromebook. Additional materials may not be borrowed or renewed until the books are returned and/or the fine is paid. Students will be charged the replacement value of lost items. Students who do not pay fines or return books will have their report cards, textbooks and yearbooks withheld. Students may renew their own books through their Insignia account!

Students will have three free pages per day if for academic purposes; otherwise 10 cents will be charged for each extra page.

The Collection
The Learning Commons has over 13,000 titles in its collection in both English and French. The Learning Commons collection contains many current hot fiction titles for teen readers, as well as non-fiction titles.

Research Databases and Newspapers
The Student Portal on the school's webpage provides the student with access to a number of databases and the e-version of the Ottawa Citizen.  Passwords are available on the "Students Software Links & Passwords" link in the Student Portal. Ask a librarian for help!
