Mission: To ensure that all students are effective users and producers of information and ideas.
The RSD Library Information and Technology Literacy (LIT) program is designed to teach all our students 21st century information literacy skills that will support them while they are in school and long after they graduate. Today’s students must be able to solve problems, collaborate on decisions, and communicate well while dealing with massive amounts of information in a variety of formats.
The LIT program takes the lead in information literacy instruction, teaching all students to be critical consumers and producers of information in a variety of formats. The RSD Library Information and Technology Literacy program also establishes and models a powerful, ubiquitous culture of reading for enjoyment and understanding.
LIT skills are enhanced when integrated with the classroom curriculum. Collaboration between teacher-librarians and classroom teachers is key to a strong information literacy program.
