Library Media Resources and Materials
School library media specialists are responsible for the review, evaluation, and selection of the school library media collection. They are guided by the system-level selection policy that embodies the philosophy and procedures set forth in national, state, and county documents. Library media specialists work cooperatively with administrators and teachers to provide resources which represent diverse points of view, stimulate growth in thinking skills, and promote the overall educational program. Library media collections are developed to meet both curricular and personal needs. To ensure that these needs are met, library media specialists apply selection criteria and use recommended selection tools.
Washington County Public Schools students and staff have access to an extensive collection of materials, both print and digital. Access to most of these resources is open and does not require login information from a WCPS networked computer. Access to all of these resources requires a username and password for external/home use. Login information can be obtained from the school based library media specialist.
