     safe online

    Safe Online for Parents, is part of the UGMS Library Media Center's mission to provide and promote reliable informational resources. As a librarian media specialist a large part of my job is to ensure our students have access to reliable information, and know how to protect themselves from misinformation and harm when on the open internet.

    Access to reliable resources is provided on our Library Media Center website, available 24/7. These resources include thousands of articles and photos in hundreds of newspapers, magazines, encyclopedias, videos, eBooks and verified websites. There are also: how-to instructions; resources for specific projects like science fair; services, such as putting a book on hold; links to Henry Public Library and much more. 

    Educating children is a collaboration between the school and the caretakers in our children's lives. There's a mountain of information on keeping our children safe online, with much detail. A simple, straightforward list to start with is 7 Steps to Good Digital Parenting.

    Author Jason Reynolds explains the mission of school libraries eloquently in this video.
