I wonder if its helping. Utah's administrators should read it but will it save many of the school librarians who are going to loose their jobs?

Maria Jose Vitorino's curator insight, April 16, 5:03 PM

All types of libraries -- school, public, and academic -- form a library ecosystem that provides and supports lifelong learning. Funding cuts to school libraries have an impact on public and academic libraries as students lack essential information literacy skills. Public and academic libraries have to adjust their core services to accommodate the need" (Karen Bonanno)

Joyce Valenza's curator insight, April 16, 5:46 PM

Via Barb Stripling: "At this moment we are facing a serious threat to school libraries, and thus to the entire library ecosystem."

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, April 17, 1:44 PM

Libraries can be great places. They are human spaces with adults who help children in schools. It is more than the books, but they are important as well. They let us travel in our imagination.

Good school-based example of promoting the role and impact of the teacher librarian in one school - great use of the voice of the school leadership and classroom teachers describing the work of the TL. I like the way the TL is silent in this video clip - all we see from the TL is ACTION not words.

This could be used as a model for other school communities to capture the role, value and impact their TL.

Web tools to support inquiry-based learning

Inquiry-based learning is an active learning process, based on identifying relevant questions to research so that the student can develop knowledge about or create solutions to issues and problems.

Web tools allow students to engage in collaborative and interactive learning. All phases of inquiry learning can be adequately addressed through a wide variety of web-based tools and applications.

Pew Internet: Advocacy Tools for Librarians

Pew Internet: Advocacy Tools for Librarians | 21st Century Teacher Librarians and School Libraries | Scoop.it
The Pew Research Center's Internet & American Life Project has produced a series of reports presenting new research on library services, trends in reading habits and patron needs in the digital age. This three-year research program is funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and informed by an advisory group, focus groups and surveys of library users, non-users, and librarians. The Pew research is rich in data that librarians can use to inform internal planning and support advocacy efforts. The Pew data is nationally representative, however many libraries are seeing examples of how the Pew findings reflect changes and trends in their own libraries. The foundation has developed the following advocacy toolkits (one kit for each report) that include materials librarians can customize and use in their own communities. The tools will help librarians effectively talk about the Pew data to stakeholders and share information about library services. For guidelines and best practices on how to use these tools, please reference the Resource Box below.

The School Libraries section of the 2014 State of America's Libraries Report provides an overview of the top school library trends of the past year.
School libraries are at a critical point: Budget and testing pressures have led to decisions to eliminate or deprofessionalize school libraries, but the increased emphasis on college and career readiness and the integration of technology makes them more critical than ever. School librarians’ collaboration with other educators is key to literacy and imlementation of Common Core State Standards. The American Library Association (ALA) is undertaking an advocacy campaign for school libraries that sets goals in five critical areas.

This is a powerful claim: "...rethinking the library’s role is changing education at the Albemarle school". This story about innovations at Monticello High School library shows how the tracking of student and teacher interactions with the school library before and after infrastructure and program changes can be used to demonstrate impact. Receiving a state-based school board association award is also evidence of impact.

The Need for the School Library

The Need for the School Library | 21st Century Teacher Librarians and School Libraries | Scoop.it
According to an article written for the Voice of San Diego, many of the
libraries in public schools across the city are not staffed.  The reason
for this lack of staff comes from, suprise, lack of funding, but also from
union rules that state librarians, library assistants and techs cannot be
replaced by a volunteer or staff that would replace the job of the above
positions in any meaningful way.  This causes the great support structure a
school librarian can give to a classroom, helping not only in research for
the students but for information for teachers.
