Using Information Effectively

The goal of the DIS library program is to ensure that students develop the ability to find and use information and to become lifelong learners and effective users of ideas and information. The library provides access to an information-rich collection of print, technologies, and research information, so that all DIS students have the opportunity to acquire:

  • Reading Literacy: to perform as an avid and capable reader
  • Technology Literacy: to be a skilled user of technology tools; to use technology to enhance learning.
  • Information Literacy: to be an organized investigator, a critical and creative thinker, an effective communicator, and a responsible information user.
