Library and media services are housed in the Jack Werner Memorial Library, located in the Student Services Center adjacent to student housing.
Students have access to the library until 10 PM each night. AVTEC staff and student workers are available into the evening to assist with computer use and access to AVTEC’s online learning system and online textbooks. An instructor is available to all students as a tutor four evenings a week.
The library has wireless internet access as well as a computer lab with sixteen computers plus six computer workstations in the study area and a variety of study tables and lounge areas for individuals and groups. Career readiness classes are taught in the space using projectors and dry erase boards which are also available to student study groups.
Textbooks, industry reference books, and industry periodicals are available to students to assist with homework and job searches. Students can utilize general office equipment including printers, scanners, copiers, a fax machines and laminators.
The library computer lab serves as a Work Keys testing site both for whole classes at instructor request and for individuals upon request.
During students’ downtime, the library is a relaxing place to lounge, quietly socialize, search the internet or browse the extensive collection of Alaska books, general fiction, and DVDs that can be checked out to students. The library is especially enjoyable on sunny days when the south-facing wall of windows lets in the sunshine.
