Welcome to the JIS Online Library

The purpose of the JIS Online Library is to:

  • support, enrich and implement the learning and teaching program of the school by collaborating with teachers to plan, produce, and teach curriculum units that encourage students to develop their independent learning skills.
  • nurture, inspire, and stimulate the vital importance of reading for pleasure and information.
  • manage an extensive and relevant collection of curriculum resources to support the learning, co-curricular, and recreational needs of the school community.
