Today, Ellis girls have access to unprecedented resources that go far beyond the holdings of the school library, but with this benefit comes the need for new skills for evaluating, producing, and using information responsibly. These skills will be particularly important to students as they prepare for higher education and for life as informed and educated citizens.
