The Santiago College Library encourages the search for information based on the learning process and the development of critical thinking. Our goal is for our students to acquire skills that will allow them to locate, interpret, organize and share information in a meaningful way.
Our collection covers a variety of media and consists of 30,000 titles. The library subscribes to 30 periodical publications in Spanish and in English. Two of Chile’s most important newspapers, El Mercurio and La Tercera, are delivered daily.
The Audiovisual Collection contains important documentary material and films on a wide variety of subjects.
Users also may access the databases Brain Pop, BookFlix and Discovery Education Streaming.
The Library’s Online Catalog facilitates the search for material and can be accessed from the classrooms or from home. The Library’s blog promotes interaction with the school community. The Santiago College Library is divided into three sections that match the school’s academic programs as part of our effort to cater to students’ specific information needs. These levels are: Preschool/Lower School, Middle School and Upper/High School. The Library staff is comprised of a Head Librarian, a librarian who is responsible for the library catalogue, and a director for each area.
