• Campus Library Mission 

    The Campus Librarian's mission is to encourage all individuals to become lifelong learners:

    Under the leadership of Library Media Services, the campus librarian will incorporate the following Standards of Service:
    • provide a comprehensive collection of instructional materials with equitable access selected in compliance with Dallas ISD approved collection development policies while responding positively to changes that users need and want in resources, formats, and services; 
    • support the students’ right to self-selection of materials for enjoyment or information; 
    • support academic rigor by integrating the teaching of research and information processing skills to ensure students are college ready and effective life-long users of information and creative problem solvers;
    • encourage a high level of circulation which includes intra-library loan of materials to all students and staff; 
    • collaborate with teachers so that information processing skills and ethical behavior in the use of the information are taught in the context of the curriculum through direct instruction of all resources; 
    • nurture and cultivate effective teaching to foster competence and stimulate interest in reading, viewing, and, using information and ideas; 
    • stay abreast of the information culture of students and staff and incorporate this awareness into the library program; 
    • be an active participant in moving the library program forward by broadening one’s professional learning through articles, conferences, professional development, and networking with colleagues; 
    • support the social and emotional learning of all students; and 
    • seek knowledge of technological changes and integrate them effectively into the framework of the curriculum.
