The role of the DoDEA School Library Information Center program is to support the DoDEA mission of preparing military children for success in a global environment. This mission is achieved by:
Information Literacy [IL] is the acquisition, interpretation, and dissemination of information. IL encompasses effective methods for locating, evaluating, using, and generating ideas and information. The focus of IL is to help DoDEA students become critical consumers of information enabling them to effectively evaluate information; then successfully apply their knowledge to decision-making, problem-solving, and creative pursuits.
The American Association of School Librarians (AASL) Standards for 21st Century Learners guide DoDEA library programs. These standards define information skill sets required for student achievement in a global world.
