Build Partnerships! Tools for Strategical Library Development

Build Partnerships! Tools for Strategical Library Development | Information Powerhouses | Scoop.it

Libraries are under pressure and need to develop and manifest themselves. Partnerships and collaborative innovation is a method to secure and develop the libraries’ influence on society.

Many libraries already collaborate with external partners, but very few libraries have a strategical and professional way of working with partnerships. Instead of considering partnerships and external collaboration as a method to continuously achieve the library’s overall objectives, the external collaboration is often used for small and  unexpected needs.

Librarians are go: How to raise your profile within and without the school community

Librarians are go: How to raise your profile within and without the school community | Information Powerhouses | Scoop.it

Stacey Taylor:

"We need to encourage quality teachers into the Teacher Librarian fold and to ensure that there are jobs for them to go to. We need to sell our wares to our own communities so that we become planning, teaching and change ...

 

'So how might we do this?

Go to as many faculty meetings as possible, offer your services whenever possible to whoever will work with you.
Develop some expertise that is unique and useful to your community.
Write and publish wherever possible
Talk to teachers and then talk some more
Make connections in person and online
Build relationships
Share successes and opportunities for learning
Project energy and enthusiasm
Take on projects that others may not think of
Partner with people that will help you further your aims."
