I've been slowly building a picture book collection for my middle school library and taking advantage of interlibrary loan from our elementary schools.  Next project: prepare picture book bibliographies for teachers to use for lesson introduction, types of writing, etc.

Lots of good information for current and future librarians on hwo to best prepare for your profession.

 

One of my favorite things I remember from Library Science 101 as an undergrad is "If you are going to be a librarian because you like books, you should leave now."

Mark Engle's curator insight, September 25, 8:43 AM
Google Apps, I believe are leading the way to student productivity. As teachers, we may see this as another hurdle in learning new technology, but students will grasp the concepts of Drive, Sharing, Collaborating, and etc, much easier than their teachers. I never thought about using the drawing as a whiteboard tool. Will have to give it a shot. Our district currently doesn't support hangouts, but with iPads we can probably use facetime in much the same way as described.
