Information Center

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:

  • Providing access to print and non-print resource materials that are aligned to the DoDEA curriculum;
  • Facilitating library services and literacy programming that fosters a love of reading.
  • Defining the essential information literacy skills required for student achievement in the 21st century; and
  • Collaborating with educators to design learning strategies and deliver instruction that meets the needs of the military child.

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. 

Information Literate Students Will:

  1. Inquire, think critically, and gain knowledge
  2. Draw conclusions, make informed decisions, apply knowledge to new situations, and create new knowledge
  3. Share their knowledge and understandings with others and participate ethically and productively as members of our democratic society. 
  4. Pursue personal and aesthetic growth
