School Library System
The mission of the Tompkins-Seneca-Tioga BOCES School Library System (SLS), a consortium of member school libraries, is to promote access to information and ideas, coordinate resource sharing, and facilitate library growth and development, thereby strengthening the school library media programs of its members as well as improve services to their users.
SLS collaborates with the region’s teacher librarians, to support their library collection development, information literacy curricula, and related automation (Follett Destiny Union Catalog) located in each library. In addition, SLS works with technology staff in both BOCES and the districts to ensure students, teachers, and parents are able to locate and access online databases, print, and non-print resources that support teaching and learning. SLS also provides professional development aligned to school library topics and automated library catalogs.
