The Indispensable Library and Librarian | Tech Tidbits

Don't ever doubt it—librarians are in a service industry. By focusing on our unique patron needs and demographics, libraries will continue to be relevant in their schools and communities.

 

Our best librarians are constantly adapting and learning. The future is rich and full of possibility for librarians who are willing to continually assess and respond to their schools’ needs.

Stephen Williams's curator insight, October 21, 6:39 PM

Printed or electronic, libraries will always provide an invaluable resource for their communities. Library staff will adapt to new technologies and new demands and will always be needed to guide patrons through a brave new world.

Presentation Zen: Bill Murray on storytelling

Presentation Zen: Bill Murray on storytelling | School Library Advocacy | Scoop.it
If you are any kind of fan of Bill Murray at all, then you will enjoy this interview he did with Howard Stern last week. Murray, who is famously hard to get a hold of, does not do a lot of interviews like this, so it was a rare treat. It's not a performance. This is just two guys talking, but there are some gems in there and even a few bits relevant for presenters and speakers of all types. You can listen to the audio here, but I highlight two of the more relevant points for presenters below.

Are School Libraries really in danger? | I Love Libraries | School Library Advocacy | Scoop.it

Our children’s education and readiness for the workforce are in peril as school library budgets and school librarians are cut.

Across the country, testing pressures and budget decisions have led to decisions to eliminate school libraries and school librarians. Yet, school libraries and school librarians are among the most effective and efficient resources to boost student academic achievement.School libraries that are adequately funded deliver incredible value by increasing student achievement.Volunteers cannot replace a certified school librarian. Volunteers play a valuable role in helping students and schools, but do not bring the teaching and research expertise of a certified school librarian.

Teachers Shadowing Students: Doing What Students Do | School Library Advocacy | Scoop.it

The following account comes from a veteran HS teacher who just became a Coach in her building. Because her experience is so vivid and sobering I have kept her identity anonymous. But nothing she describes is any different than my own experience in sitting in HS classes for long periods of time. And this report of course accords fully with the results of our student surveys.
