"A new breed of library warrants a new breed of librarian.....Correction — media specialist. Hall County staffs a media specialist at each school throughout the district, charged with not only running the media center, but acting as a facilitator to incorporate new technology into the classroom. Even five years ago, school libraries were just that: a place to check out books. Now schools boast media centers, making them the technological and informational hubs of the school."

Rethinking the Library to Improve Information Literacy | School libraries for information literacy and learning! | Scoop.it

"Many schools that have adopted a 1:1 program have made the mistake of forgetting the library. The library is the cornerstone of every school and is in a current state of flux. No one knows what to make of the library and some feel it is a relic in the context of schools. New information technologies emerge and the library is soon forgotten or pushed to the side, however, the library has never been more important."

"Based on unwavering support by the municipalities, the Swedish public and school library systems can look back on a long history of fruitful collaboration. The libraries often share premises and cooperate to varying degrees, both with and without formal agreements. Statistics for 2010 indicate that 43 per cent of 1,214 Swedish public libraries were integrated with their counterparts in the schools."
