Educational Leadership:The Resourceful School:A 21st Century ... | School Librarian As Building Leader | Scoop.it

"In 2007, when I became head librarian at George C. Marshall High School, a Fairfax County, Virginia, public school with 1,600 students, the library was frozen in the 1960s and 1970s. Nearly a decade into the 21st century, the library had barely made it past the middle of the 20th. The space was designed for a slide-rule-and-mimeograph student who searched in a card catalog, not by Internet or computer. The place needed new energy and life to entice current students to visit.

 

The school is preparing for a major renovation to be completed in 2014, but our move into a newly designed space won't come soon enough for students who are already here. My co-librarian, Judith Watson, and I needed to make short-term changes with a minimal budget. We began by considering how students use a high school library."
