With everything becoming available online we won't need librarians? | School Libraries around the world | Scoop.it

There have been many articles and blog posts lately debating the future of libraries.

Free Technology for Teachers: The Teacher-Librarian is Your Best Tech Resource | School Libraries around the world | Scoop.it

The school librarian, once known for handling books, is now responsible for both print and nonprint resources. The job description has changed more in the last two decades than any other teaching position.
