The Middle School Library is central to the learning focus of the school and serves the whole community.
Each campus has a library and its own online catalog, which can be searched individually or as a group, using the Follett Destiny software -- see zis.ch.
Digital resources are shared between the campuses, using the Libguides toolkit -- see libguides.zis.ch.
At Research Central you will find the ZIS collection of Libguides designed to help you with all of your research needs and so much more.
