Do you know that we have jQuery, Prototype and mooTools libraries built-in Sitefinity 3.x? In order to use these libraries, you could simply reference them like this:

<sf:JsFileLink id="jsLink" runat="server" ScriptType="jQuery"></sf:JsFileLink> 
<sf:JsFileLink id="jsLink" runat="server" ScriptType="prototype"></sf:JsFileLink> 
<sf:JsFileLink id="jsLink" runat="server" ScriptType="mooTools"></sf:JsFileLink> 


The JsFileLink control is really helpful when you need to use an external javascript file as well:
<sf:JsFileLink id="jsLink" runat="server" FileName=”~/…”></sf:JsFileLink>  


Note that the javascript file path would be resolved on server side, so you do not need to hard code the file paths.

I bet this will be helpful :)
