Our Mission

The mission of the JHS library is to ensure that "students and staff are effective users of ideas and information." (excerpted from Information Power: Building Partnerships for Learning, 1998)

We strive to accomplish that goal by:

  • supporting staff and students with up to date resources
  • providing instruction of information literacy skills
  • collaborating with teachers to promote access and usage of information
  • encouraging independent reading

Research Resources

  • Subscription Databases
    Useful research databases for high school students. Includes SIRS, ProQest, eLibrary and more.
  • Class Resources
    Lots of great links for Social Studies, Math, English and other subjects' class assignments.
  • Search Tools
    Search engines, metasearch engines and directories.
  • Primary Resources
  • Citing Sources
    Learn the right way – and the legal way - to cite resources, for your paper or presentation.
