These guidelines are particularly helpful in evaluating "science" sources. So much that isa presented as "science" is biased and may be more appropriately categorized as "political science".

I think the way we physically 'do education' will shift once libraries like these catch on and in turn so wil lthe old pedagogical views that are being held on to (I hope)!

Danielle Lewis's curator insight, September 29, 2013 9:39 PM

Note the primary need for librarians as educators, educational leaders, developers of curriculum, and information managers continue.

Jane Sowter-Maranion's insight:

The BER helped to build beautiful libraries in Australian schools, however many school executives still do not see their relevance as an intergral part of students learning. Teacher Librarians must use the research supporting better educational outcomes for students, and act as advocates for the school library.
