Our libraries encompass two things:
They are social learning spaces where students can gather, conduct research, study and relax. In other words, much like a traditional libraries. The idea though, is that as we embrace a 21st century learning model, librarians (aka information specialists) are collaborating with school technology specialists and IT staff to provide a broader range of support and services..everything from help with database access and smart Internet searches, to collaboration with teachers on research projects integrating technology, to teacher and student support on issues with printers and hardware.
The libraries also provide collaborative web spaces where information specialists and technology specialists work together to provide the same sort of support and services. Here students and parents can find links to paid databases and recommended web resources in our curriculum links areas. They can search our library catalogs, read additional information about the books using our TitlePeek subscription, and put books on reserve, from school or from home.
ASIJ community members can find examples of exemplary student work in our student work showcase and view slideshows of library events, such as author visits. The latest Library/IT news, be it a recommendation for a great new online tool, or a review of a new teen read, will be coming your way via our Library/Tech blogs.
