Library media specialists K-12 offer instruction and resources in print, audiovisual, and online formats to provide a foundation for using libraries and information resources in lifelong learning. The library program, in collaboration with classroom teachers, specialists, and staff, supports academic and recreational reading, the development of research and presentation skills integrating the use of technology, and media arts/video production. Cambridge school libraries also foster connections between the school community and local and global institutions for teaching and learning.

The Educational Technology Department ensures that all students, teachers, administrators, and staff have access to and become proficient users of technology and that technology becomes a powerfully integrated and routinely used tool in the Cambridge Public Schools. It strives to make sure that these resources are used to enhance the delivery of instruction, to support all areas of the curriculum, and to support the educational needs of students, staff and community. The Educational Technology Department offers this support with skills-based and curriculum-integrated professional development opportunities, collaborative initiatives with other curriculum departments, and software and tools that are current and necessary for a 21st teaching and learning environment.
