Abstract

Along with the information has become easily accessible from anywhere now a days, the use of school libraries has been decreased and marginalized by the easiness of search engines. This issue has a significant influence from the student's digital native background that indicated from their information behavior on working their assignments. By interview results from the teacher librarian and students at one of the international school in Jakarta, it is showed that the students generally did not use their school libraries mainly due to the inadequacy on educational and reference materials. This study introduces the concept of the synergic collaboration between teachers, school libraries and public libraries in order to meet their user's need.
