A happier Ingrid made a better librarian. The pink hair and glitter shoes helped me get remembered at conferences, but being memorable only gets you so far. All these unicorn brooches and dinosaur earrings and ...

1. Make it personal

2. Show and tell

3. Small steps, etc"

"These things are the most important issues for librarians in schools
Get to know the content and structure of the curriculum, if you don’t already. Talk to teachers, staff parents and pupils. Talk to everyone. Network, talk to other librarians. Take every CPD opportunity you can get. Bid for money to supplement your budget, and keep good records so you can make your case clearly and effectively. Try and be innovative, use new technology when appropriate to improve the services you offer. Share ideas on mailing lists, blogs and wikis. Take an interest in your pupils and find out what really makes them tick. Be selective about how you spend your time: if it doesn’t help pupils or school staff, forget it.
Have fun, it’s a great job if it’s done properly.
