Flip This Library: School Libraries Need a Revolution

Flip This Library: School Libraries Need a Revolution | Libraries 101 | Scoop.it

What has to happen for school libraries to become relevant? If we want to connect with the latest generation of learners and teachers, we have to totally redesign the library from the vantage point of our users—our thinking has to do a 180-degree flip. In short, it’s time for school libraries to become a lot less like Microsoft and a lot more like Google. With this notion in mind, David Loertscher, collaborated with two colleagues, Carol Koechlin and Sandi Zwaan, Canadian educational consultants, to develop an idea called the school library learning commons.

Discovering the Impact of Library Use and Student Performance (EDUCAUSE Review) | EDUCAUSE.edu

"Conclusion

The ability to demonstrate the value and impact of libraries and their collections is becoming all the more important. Not only do we need to convince the university executives and faculty of the value of libraries, but our most challenging audience is increasingly the student body. We now have a compelling story to share based on the data generated to date: students who access library resources do outperform students who don't. The Library Cube, therefore, provides a new facet to better understand the total student experience."

Campaign to convince us to abandon our ebook readers...Gruen Planet ABC TV | Libraries 101 | Scoop.it

If you are a watcher of ABC's Gruen Planet you'll be familiar with the segment called 'The Brief' where advertising agencies are asked to prepare a pitch to sell an unsellable topic. Last week they featured a campaign to convince us to abandon our e-book readers and only read books made of paper.

I love the Gruen Transfer and Gruen Planet, wish they had it on US television. Have to have friends from Australia send me the DVDs when they come out. They are brilliant.

VIT Standards and Teacher Librarian Practice

Compiled by the Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA) and Victorian Catholic Teacher Librarians (VCTL) Working Party on VIT Standards, this document provides scenarios on each standard for teacher librarians to use as a guide when preparing for their annual review meetings (ARMs). Even though this document is based on the Victoria standards for teachers it can and does have application for other states standards. This document is available now on the ALIA Schools website. The creation of this document was originally part of the work undertaken for SIFiL [School Improvement Framework in Libraries].
