Χρειαζόμαστε σχολικές βιβλιοθήκες;

Θα ήταν στοιχειωδώς έντιμο να αιτιολογηθεί το κλείσιμο των σχολικών βιβλιοθηκών με τον ισχυρισμό ότι είναι πολυτέλεια η αποκλειστική διάθεση ενός εκπαιδευτικού για τη λειτουργία τους. Όμως, οι αντιφάσεις είναι τέτοιες και δείχνουν τουλάχιστον άγνοια για τη σημασία και το ρόλο της σχολικής βιβλιοθήκης, περιφρόνηση για τους μαθητές και τους όσους εκπαιδευτικούς τις εντάξαν στην εκπαιδευτική διαδικασία. Την ίδια στιγμή που απαγορεύεται η πρόσβαση στον εξοπλισμό και στα βιβλία που φιλοξενούνται στις σχολικές βιβλιοθήκες, γίνονται διακηρύξεις για το «νέο σχολείο». Για ερευνητικές εργασίες και «διερευνητική προσέγγιση» και «συνεργατική μάθηση», τέτοια γράφονται στην «Καινοτομία των ερευνητικών εργασιών στο Λύκειο». Για «εξοικείωση με λεξικά» και «αξιοποίηση των ηλεκτρονικών εργαλείων που περιλαμβάνονται στο Ψηφιακό σχολείο», τέτοια γράφονται στα νέα Προγράμματα Σπουδών για την Α΄ Λυκείου.

The Need for the School Library

The Need for the School Library | libraries | Scoop.it
According to an article written for the Voice of San Diego, many of the
libraries in public schools across the city are not staffed.  The reason
for this lack of staff comes from, suprise, lack of funding, but also from
union rules that state librarians, library assistants and techs cannot be
replaced by a volunteer or staff that would replace the job of the above
positions in any meaningful way.  This causes the great support structure a
school librarian can give to a classroom, helping not only in research for
the students but for information for teachers.

Delivering the Library - Library Journal

Delivering the Library - Library Journal | libraries | Scoop.it

Library Journal Delivering the Library Library Journal Bookmobiles, like the library systems they serve, have been in a state of transformation for quite some time. As with libraries in general, public perception sometimes lingers on the nostalgic past, while in fact today’s bookmobile services are focused firmly on the future. “We are all doing the same thing, even though we all do it differently. We all have the same goal, which is outreach,” says Martha Buckner, Association of Bookmobile and Outreach Services (ABOS) president. It’s hard to pin down exactly how many bookmobiles are currently in operation throughout the United States. The most recent data from the National Center for Educational Statistics lists 864, with Kentucky (98) and California (69) leading the way. But that data has not been updated in recent years.

Now, more than ever, we need local evidence from every TL practitioner regarding their contribution to teacher practice and student learning. ALA President Barbara Stripling makes presents a strong argument for the existence of school libraries, given the trickle effect their demise will have on public libraries, academic libraries, and the preparedness of young people to effectively contribute to society as creative, critical, ethical and informed citizens.
