The mission of the LCSD library media program
is to ensure that students and staff are effective users of ideas and information.

- TEACHER VIDEO RESOURCES
- Worldbook On-Line Reference Center (worldbook.com). Students and families in Lincoln County School District are welcome to use subscription service. Login and passwords are available from your teacher or media assistant.
- Oregon State School Library Information System (OSLIS) provides all Oregon students and families with Gale's databases for periodical literature (magazines, newspapers, journals, etc.) LOGIN and PASSWORDS are available from your teacher or media assistant if you are outside the LCSD network.
- Copyright and Citation Links
When a work is created it is owned by its creator. Copying that work is a form of stealing called plagiarism. Copyright laws and "fair use" guidelines protect creators' intellectual property while allowing students to use portions of that work if they cite credit to the originator. A nice tutorial in the steps to researching can be found at the OSLIS "Secondary or Elementary How To" link, as well as a CITATIONMAKER tool for doing bibliographies correctly.
Copying and pasting another's work and claiming credit is plagiarism. While technologically possible, it is ethically wrong. Schools have in place disciplinary consequences and want to promote ethical research in our students.
- Project SEAL & Model Classroom Design
With the help of each of the school media assistants and other support personnel, we hope to accomplish these program goals:
- Promote and reinforce students’ interest and ability in reading and media literacy.
- Assist students and staff in developing the full range of abilities needed to achieve information literacy.
- Facilitate uses of technology and other resources that support student achievement of standards and benchmarks.
- Build connections among school library media centers, public libraries, and other information sources.
- Provide a comprehensive, balanced collection of print and non-print media selected, cataloged, and organized according to standards set up by the LCSD and chosen with respect for the unique and individual learning needs and interests at each school location.
- Maintain effective communication with staff and students regarding services, collection & curriculum development and other issues such as copyright policy.
- Establish and maintain lines of communication with appropriate LCSD personnel.

Doug Hoffman, LCSD Media Specialist
If you have questions about the libraries in our district, please feel free to contact me at my email shown below. I've been a teacher with the LCSD for 34 years, the last 12 as a Media Specialist. I'm interested in promoting reading and seeing students succeed in seeking the information that they need.
Our district serves a diverse population, and our media centers need to be welcoming hubs of learning for all. Libraries are not just about finding answers to questions, but about questioning the answers...
