Pierce Library is committed to serving the high school students in Eastern Oregon. We have identified four programs that we can and will support.
- Advance Placement (AP) Classes that wish to visit Pierce Library on a Prearranged basis. (Town patron status)
- College credit courses taught on the campus of a local high school. These are classes taught by EOU faculty for EOU credit. (EOU Students status)
- Support and assistance to local high school students who come to the EOU campus to attend classes. (Students will receive an EOU ID number)
- Any class requiring the use of unique resources held only at EOU or another library. (Students will receive an"other patron" card)
We would appreciate the fo0llowing from the high school faculty wishing to visit Pierce library:
- Advance notification of 1 week, and our ability to accommodate a limited number (max 20) students at any one time. Some classes will need to be split; half one day and half on the next.
- Completed paperwork in advance for students to receive EOU library cards (see below). This allows students to check out materials on the day of their visit.
- Active participation and supervision by the teacher during the EOU library session.
- We limit access on our machines to library held research materials. Only currently enrolled EOU students, staff and faculty can access the internet from our machines. High school students will not have internet access from the machines in our labs. High school students will not have access to our research databases from home or their school.
High School Students can receive:
- An EOU other patron library card. this allows the students to borrow any items from Eastern's collections and the ability to borrow materials from other libraries through the interibrary loan system. This card does not permitt the holder access to our research databases from their home or school. This card is free to all area high school students with a current student ID. Applications from students under 18 require the signature of a parent or guardian.
EOU enrolled high school students will receive:
- A standard EOU ID number. This allows access to all of the library services above as well as; remote access to our databases, and Summit borrowing privileges. A student must provide the library with proof of enrollment in an EOU class or be authenticated through the Banner system.
Students are responsible for any fines incurred. Pierce Library is willing to provide on a limited basis training to high school faculty on their individual campuses. For information, please contact Ken Watson, Public Services Librarian, Pierce Library 541-962-3546 or by email.
