Our Mission


The Mission of Minnechaug Regional High School's Information and Research Commons is to support the development of information literate students who are able to read, apply ethics and appreciate the work of others while learning information behavior skills that can be sustained throughout life, transferred into different environments and recontextualized to suit a specific need.
