Looking for Databases?
You will need to log on to Canvas (icon linked below). Once in Canvas, choose one of your courses. In most courses, you will find a link to "Library" found under "Home" list on the left hand side of your screen. Once you click on "Library", you will be prompted to click on "Open in New Tab". Following that link will then take you to the NEW CHS Library Canvas page! In addition to our database collection, students and staff will also be able to access Lib Guides, Genealogy Resources, Book Lists, Research Resources, etc. If you need assistance, please do not hesitate to contact any media staff member for assistance.

Mrs. Spilman processes and catalogs many of our books in the CHS collection, so she's a great resource if you would like to request a new book--especially in non-fiction. Mrs. Spilman is your go-to for computer credentials and password support if needed. Mrs. Spilman is also a great contact if you would like to suggest a display idea for our display cases located inside and outside the CHS Media Center.
