Shannon Englebrecht, who works for the San Francisco Unified School District, is poised to become one of a rare breed in California when her hours are increased next year: a full-time public school librarian.

GwynethJones's curator insight, May 29, 2014 6:23 AM

"The lack of certified librarians has led to a decrease in student access to books, a decline in student research skills and the loss of an important resource for teachers, said Janice See-Gilmore, president of the California School Library Association.

“It’s actually pretty dreadful,” See-Gilmore said. “In 1999 we had 1,300 teacher librarians. We’re just going in the wrong direction.”

From ALA President, Barb Stripling: Libraries of all types work together as part of a library ecosystem to deliver learning opportunities for people of all ages. However, a threat to one part of the system stresses the entire system.

"In April, the American Library Association and the nation celebrated School Library Month. Libraries of all types work together as part of a library ecosystem to deliver learning opportunities for people of all ages. However, a threat to one part of the system stresses the entire system. At this moment, we are facing a serious threat to school libraries."

An example of a school board expecting an aide to deliver a reading program and provide "non-certified" instruction. What does that really mean? Bravo to the parents who tried to stop this action in their school district. Employ an aide and a certified teacher librarian to deliver a quality education and library service to the whole school community and stop using limited funds as the reason for why you need to cut back on this important component of the modern learning environment of every child.

In the Library with the Lead Pipe » How Well Are You Doing Your Job? You Don’t Know. No One Does. | School Libraries and more | Scoop.it

In Brief: The outputs librarians are measuring are not directly associated with specific practices that lead to improved lives for the people we serve. If we cannot make that connection, we have no way of knowing how well we are doing our jobs. This article suggests four measurable outcomes that libraries and librarians could use to make sure their activities are improving their constituents’ well-being, and also use in comparing their effectiveness with each other, allowing less effective libraries to learn from libraries that are achieving greater levels of success.
