Library Information Centers
DoDEA will launch a fully integrated library automation system which will allow our students to access school library materials, eBooks, and information from over 25 online databases through one search box. Students will have the ability to retrieve current information resource products that are updated daily, from any Internet accessible computer in the school, home, and community, as well as, while transitioning from one school to another.
The launch of this system provides equitable access to contemporary information products across DoDEA for all students and standardizes the process for using these materials. DoDEA school library information specialists assist students in identifying, locating, and evaluating information. They help students deconstruct informational messages communicated through print, electronic media and the Internet in order to develop higher order thinking and problem solving skills. The implementation of this system will serve as the foundation for teaching digital literacy skills that help our students become critical consumers of ideas and information.
