The library is central to providing a stimulating learning environment that supports the Jakarta Intercultural School vision and aims to promote an information empowered and literature enriched school community of independent, lifelong learners.
Jakarta Intercultural School is an academically oriented college preparatory school, and as such, recognizes the importance of an area set aside specifically for collaborative and independent study. This area has been designated as the High School Library, and the following are the expectations of conduct and acceptable use for the Temporary HS Library:
Thank you for making sure the library is a place where people can collaborate, read, create, and study.
Beginning March 10, 2017, the High School library ceased charging students for late library materials. The current policy is as follows:
All the computers on the high school campus are connected to printers which require authentication with our identification cards. The library will provide paper and supplies to students for printing. Per school policy and the cost of printer refills, we do not encourage color printing. In addition, multiple copies of the same document are discouraged, and large print jobs will require the permission of library staff or faculty member. Please limit the number of pages one prints by creating and assigning electronic documents, using recycled paper, thinking before one prints, and having respect for our environment as JIS continues to become a greener campus. Finally, If your document does not print the first time, please ask the library staff to help to avoid printing multiple copies of the same document.
The High School LMC has copy machines available for student use. This machine is intended to be used to copy library materials for classroom or research purposes. If a patron needs to make copies of classroom notes, homework, or for personal use, he/she is encouraged to use the built-in scanner and email the documents to one’s self. As always, the library staff will happy to assist patrons with copying as to ensure the proper use and maintenance of the photocopy machines.
The JIS High School Library holds an ever-changing collection of digital cameras, video cameras, presentation tools such as wireless mice, and other electronic equipment for students and faculty to utilize. The following governs circulation of this equipment:
