Should libraries continue to stock 'copies' of textbooks?  Guess it must be open-source, or whole site licence?

Sue Osborne's curator insight, July 6, 2013 11:39 PM

The Library sits in the middle, assisting the student in acessing the digital content and teaching the critical thinking skills required to navigate such content. Also, in helping students group together content and resources in a coherent, relevant way. Libraries will do what they have always done - adapt. Books are books, regardless of format. Now is the time for libraries to take themselves to the students, rather than waiting for the students to come to them. The "right now" library service is the way of the future, but there is always a curation and dissemination role too if we put ourselves at the front line (instead of in the back room).

Anne Whisken's comment, July 7, 2013 6:27 PM
Great summary Sue. Where do you see the concept of 'reference desk' sitting in the future school library?

The Reflection part of the learning process often tends to get dropped because of time. This article not only shows the importance of that step, but also gives some great tools to help with it. Unfortunantly, in our district, access to technology is still a roadblock.
