With students accessing different kinds of material and the same material in different ways, the OPAC and vertical file may not be the best way to lead your students to the best content.  This article shows differing ways of attacking the problem.

Practical Tips for Productive Living...

I’ve always been someone driven to excel and make the most out of this wild ride called life.

So when I read Tim Ferriss’ book The 4-Hour Workweek, a new world of possibilities opened up to me. After discovering his personal productivity tips, I knew the way I worked was never going to be the same.

The Need for the School Library

The Need for the School Library | Primary School 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.

Becoming the embedded school librarian begins with understanding our place in the New Zealand Curriculum | Half pint of wisdom | Primary School Libraries | Scoop.it

It is critical that school librarians work very hard to become embedded in the curriculum delivery process within their schools. We need to explore ways of making explicit connections to the vision, values and key competencies in the curriculum document. We need to understand and connect with the charter and goals articulated by our school community, and to be clear and forthright in expressing those connections to our teaching colleagues.
The key competencies are thinking, using language, symbols and texts, managing self, relating to others, and participating and contributing...

The New School Library

The New School Library | Primary School Libraries | Scoop.it

"Some independent school librarians are being asked to dramatically weed their print collections to accommodate a move to a space smaller by half or more. More than a few school leaders see this as a good time to cut library funding in order to save money in the overall budget.

Clearly, a popular impression out there is that the plentiful free information on the open Internet will answer all academic needs.

We respectfully disagree — and the research is on our side.

Today’s independent school libraries have an increasingly different look and function from libraries of the past, even the recent past...

Australian Libraries Gateway: Collection development policies

A collection development policy is a statement of general collection building principles which delineates the purpose and content of a collection in terms relevant to both external and internal audiences. It would not normally include the procedures necessary for the implementation of these policies. Items which should be considered for inclusion in a collection development policy cover both an introduction to the library and its collections, and details of the subject areas collected.
