School libraries contribute two types of information resources to teaching

and learning by school libraries: books

and periodicals, and databases accessed via the Internet.

This includes both free content on the World Wide Web and licensed databases to which the library must subscribe for a fee.

Both types of resources exhibited persistent, positive influences on students’

test scores.

Media Literacy Media

  • Media Literacy is the ability to access, analyze, evaluate and create media in a variety of forms.

  • Media Literacy is a 21st century approach to education. It provides a framework to access, analyze, evaluate, create and participate with messages in a variety of forms — from print to video to the Internet. Media literacy builds an understanding of the role of media in society as well as essential skills of inquiry and self-expression necessary for citizens of a democracy.
