The library on each campus houses numerous volumes of historical, fictional, biographical, technical, and reference works for student use in research and career development. At the Technology Campus, the students are provided with a “Mega Lab” that provides the foundation of access to a virtual library to enable students and faculty to search for library materials and conduct research through EBSCO library holdings and other designated research links. At the Aviation Campus, the students have a computer laboratory as well as the library that includes multiple computer workstations making internet and online database research available to the aviation students.
