The library is central to the school community in the process of developing students who are literate users of technology. Highly-qualified teacher librarians, working in conjunction with content-area teachers, provide instruction for students that develops their ability to find and use information to support their academic learning and personal development. The Utah Standards for Library Media were created by librarians in schools to demonstrate the integration of information literacy skills across all curricular areas.
The Library Media Standards are divided into three main areas:
- Reading Engagement
- Information and Research
- Media Literacy
-From the USBE Library Media Philosophy
