Library Instruction Mission

Library Instruction Mission:

The John Adams High School library seeks to support the students and faculty in their academic research assignments by offering instruction to build the information literacy skills needed to effectively recognize when information is needed and have the ability to locate, evaluate, and use effectively the needed information.  In addition, the librarians seek to enhance the enjoyment of reading among our students and encourage them to be lifelong readers.

Through library instruction classes, students will learn to:

  • Determine the extent of information needed;
  • Access the needed information effectively and efficiently;
  • Evaluate information and its sources critically;
  • Incorporate selected information into one’s knowledge base;
  • Use information effectively to accomplish a specific purpose;
  • Understand the economic, legal, and social issues surrounding the use of information, and access and use information ethically and legally.
