Bishop Chatard offers a variety of programs and services to assist students who would benefit from tutoring or one-on-one time with a teacher. For more information, students are encouraged to look at the options detailed on this page or talk with a school counselor.
Online Library Database by Gale
The Marion County Internet Library reference website by Gale is an amazing resource for student research. Don’t miss it! No login is needed to access the area in the school building. (To access some areas outside of the school building, you may need to sign in with your public library card.)
Students: Add a permanent icon to this website on your iPad home screen for quick access to this valuable collection of research databases.
BCHS Electronic Card Catalog & e-Books
BCHS students can access an electronic card catalog of all the BCHS Collaborative Learning Center books via a new app on their iPads called Destiny Quest. Catalog searches and ‘hold requests’ can be made via the app. Books on hold can then be picked up at the CLC. Search results (excluding searches for novels) also may include links to pertinent websites, along with books currently in the CLC. The quality of the website links is routinely screened by the Follett Library System.
When not using their iPad, searches can be made via this url: bishopchatardlibrary.follettdestiny.com
The student’s personal login will be needed to place a hold on an item.Online through the Collaborative Learning Center (CLC)
e-Books at the Center
Students can also check out any of the center’s over 150 electronic books through the same Destiny Quest app and read them via their Follett’s Reader app on the iPad. Books can also be downloaded for offline reading. Although checkout length may vary by book, in general they can be checked out for five days, after which they will disappear from the reader app. eBooks can also be checked out via PCs or Macs using the url above and can be read on those devices.
