The ECC Library & Learning Hub
The ECC Library & Learning Hub collective is a multi-campus setup, across Elim Christian College’s three campuses: BC, GC and MAC.
Our GC Library is a flexible, open and student-centred space which supports teaching, learning and community on GC, and is a popular commons area for our junior students during lunch times and break times. In addition to orientation sessions and timetabled library class times, the GC Library also hosts chess club, makerspace and a great leadership program for student librarians.
Our MAC Learning Hub is a generous space with great indoor and outdoor flow. As the space is used as a learning commons and reading engagement hub for our Y0-13 MAC cohort, it embodies a natural sense of community with older students mentoring and role-modelling to the younger students. As a result, we have been very intentional about cornering off individual spaces for our junior students, middle-school aged students and senior students who can be simultaneously using and sharing these spaces at any one time, for a variety of purposes.
Our BC Learning Hub has currently been repurposed as a flexible learning space for our BC middle school cohort: The Whirlpool. Our students have regular coaching sessions in research and digital literacy with Mrs. Randall, the Information Research Enabler. Temporary arrangements have been made for students to access reading material through Auckland libraries.
All three libraries and learning hubs support ECC’s culture of blended learning, fostering a love and engagement with reading and acquiring knowledge, and practicing good stewardship with the school’s resources. We have an active presence on ECCO (Elim Christian College Online). Our online library is accessible 24-7, via the platform Accessit, here. Through Accessit, we also utilize the OneSearch function, which provides our staff and students with access to scholarly databases, online journals and encyclopaedias via EPIC. Our library team is regularly updating the OPAC homepages with updates, learning support tips, and professional development tips from the world of reading engagement and research.
