How can a Learning Commons Informationist help you?


Your Learning Commons is a place where you can:

  • develop a love of reading for learning and for pleasure;
  • acquire an understanding of the richness and diversity of literary and informational texts produced in Canada and around the world;
  • obtain access to programs, resources, and integrated technologies that support all curriculum areas;
  • understand and value the role of public library systems as a resource for lifelong learning.

The Learning Commons Informationist (LCI) plays a key role in the development of information literacy and research skills. In collaboration with classroom  teachers, LCI's provide students with:

  • authentic information and research skills that foster learning, including the ability to: locate, select, gather, critically evaluate, create, and communicate information;
  • use the information obtained to solve problems, make decisions, build knowledge, create personal meaning, and enrich their lives;
  • communicate their findings for different audiences, using a variety of formats and technologies;
  • use information and research with understanding, responsibility, and imagination.
