The need to shift and widen school library advocacy efforts - Gary Hartzell

For more than twenty years, school librarians have focused the largest portion of their advocacy efforts on individual principals, superintendents, and board members, struggling to convince them that libraries should be integral and institutionalized elements of K-12 education. It hasn’t worked.


Libraries and librarians remain frighteningly vulnerable to cuts, even elimination, in schools everywhere. These individualized field-based advocacy efforts may have forestalled greater disaster, but they have not and cannot by themselves make libraries and librarians secure in our schools.


To do that librarians need to widen their advocacy efforts and give priority to two new targets: (1) the educational administration (Ed Ad) professors who shape beginning administrators’ perceptions and values and (2) the professional associations that have a powerful influence on how administrators approach their work challenges once they are in the field. In effect, this widening represents a shift from battling for current school leaders’ support to preemptively conditioning the next generation of administrators to support libraries as they take up their new responsibilities.

With everything becoming available online we won't need librarians? | libraries | Scoop.it

There have been many articles and blog posts lately debating the future of libraries. It is hard to imagine a school without one of these learning centers (where else would faculty meetings, testing, and baby showers take place?), but this post focuses on busting the myth that librarians will become obsolete.

To Remain Relevant, Libraries Should Help Patrons Create — The Digital Shift | libraries | Scoop.it

"In the not-so-distant future, communities could view their local libraries as the place to go when they want to publish their own ebook, create and edit their latest song or video, or even design and print out plastic tools, toys, and prototypes. A growing number of libraries already offer their patrons tools such as recording equipment and sound and video editing software. Now, some are beginning to house 3D printers. In fact, many libraries have begun viewing such services as a core part of their mission. (For more on this, see the editorial “Owning Up to the Future.”)"
