Mission

The mission of the Blessed Trinity Catholic High School Media Center is to provide curricular support to the students, faculty, and staff using a variety of print and non-print resources; encourage students to be active and effective users of information; to become lifelong learners; and to foster spiritual growth and academic excellence among the Blessed Trinity community.



The Blessed Trinity Media Center subscribes to several Online Databases to help students and faculty with their research and information gathering needs.  These are easily accessible via bt-mc while at school and via bt-mc through workfromhome.org when away from our campus.

Our Databases include:
Gale Virtual Reference Library Gale Virtual Reference Library is a database of encyclopedias and specialized reference sources for multidisciplinary research.

The net result is tens of thousands of hard-to-find essays at your fingertips. It's all designed to raise the level of research while providing the around-the-clock remote access that today's researchers demand.

Featured are hundreds of continuously updated issue and country portals that bring together a variety of specially selected, highly relevant sources for analysis of social, political, military, economic, environmental, health, and cultural issues. Each of these gateway pages includes an overview, unique "perspectives" articles written by local experts, reference, periodical, primary source and statistical information. Rich multimedia - including podcasts, video, and interactive graphs - enhance each portal. Use Browse Issues and Topics, Country Finder, Basic Search or Advanced Search to explore the database.
