The librarian provides an expert resource for students at every stage of the research process. Teachers are welcome to book lessons with the librarian to familiarize their classes with the school’s resources as well as research skills, evaluating sources, and citations. Students may consult the librarian regarding their own research projects as well as extra-curricular reading.
