“The project to build an online platform for academic resources is an exciting one. A digital library brings within easy reach the bodies of research academics and students require to become thought leaders in their fields. It extends and enhances the library collections of publications held on campus. It multiplies the sites available to us to do our reading, reflection, and writing, as much as it does for teaching and learning. Yes, it is about access, but access with a purpose. In doing so our purposes are to strengthen knowledge projects as the main pursuit of our work, unrelenting inquiry as our method, and most critically, scholarship as the core of our academic identity. Our Library and Digital Collections, when fully established in 2022, will locate our scholars – staff and students alike, amidst the scholarly community not only as readers, but authors and contributors. Inevitably what we teach and learn at Cornerstone will make our teachers, researchers, and students the sought-after specialists we know they will be, both professionally and scholarly.”
At Cornerstone, we believe that education sets the foundation for life and should be a positive, rich experience for all our students. We are a caring, warm and welcoming community where every student is valued, respected and provided with the opportunity to thrive.
For us, effective teaching and learning cannot occur in the absence of proper library resources. Our Library and Digital Collections aim to provide access to a range of academic materials that will broaden our span of knowledge in various fields of research and scholarship. It is a system that serves both students and faculty, and members of the wider community.
This resource is literally a library without walls. Any person who has a computer and connection to the library network can access not only the resources of the library but also a variety of information available through national and international networks like internet and intranet without being physically present in the library.
I invite you to come and discover for yourself the rich and exciting educational resources available through the Cornerstone Library and Digital Collections.
