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