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.

INKTOBER

 

In  October of 2019 the IRC hosted a drawing event called Inktober. “Inktober is a month long art challenge created by artist Jake Parker that is focused on improving skill and developing positive drawing habits.”   We hope to bring this back to the IRC in October of 2020.
