Gudewill Learning Commons

Gudewill Library

The Gudewill Learning Commons is a place where students learn information literacy and develop lifelong learning skills and habits. The objective of the our program is to support the curriculum and to teach research skills that will enable students to competently conduct research as required for their studies. In addition, this program includes assisting students in developing appropriate citation skills. The knowledge and skills they acquire will prepare them for post-secondary programs.

Our collection reflects the curriculum and includes databases, books, teacher resources, audio books and DVDs. In addition, the school subscribes to a variety of magazines and newspapers. Computers are available for students to access electronic information resources and full-text periodical indexes. Students are able to access these resources on-site, in the classrooms, and at home through the student learning commons web page.

Teachers in all grades and subject areas book the learning commons for research instruction related to topics currently under study in the classroom. GNS students and staff are welcome to use the facilities and resources for study, research, and reading. A staff member is available to assist students throughout the school day.
