Teachers view the Library Calendar (Google calendar) that is shared on their teacher computer desktop. The teachers can either contact the librarian via email or in person to request a reservation during particular periods on chosen dates. These reservations include the Library Media Center, computer lab, netbook carts, laptop carts, and IPad carts. Only one class each period can schedule to use the Library Media Center, computer lab, or carts. However, students in other classes (with permission from their teacher) are still allowed to visit the Library Media Center anytime during the school day.
MAGNOLIA is a statewide consortium funded by the Mississippi Legislature which provides online research databases for publicly funded K-12 schools, public libraries, community college libraries, and university libraries in Mississippi.
MAGNOLIA began in 1997 when Mississippi legislators appropriated $568,000 to purchase online databases for publicly funded libraries in Mississippi. Senator Grey Ferris of Vicksburg was instrumental in bringing this project to the legislature. The legislature continues to fund MAGNOLIA even after 10 years. With funding now exceeding $1.2 million, MAGNOLIA databases are being used by libraries and the citizens of Mississippi.
The MAGNOLIA databases have been of great benefit to Mississippi residents since August 1997. In addition to searching the databases in libraries across the state, individuals can also access the electronic resources available through MAGNOLIA from their home or office computers. Interested individuals should contact their local library for the necessary location ID and/or password.
