What Do Stakeholders Know about School Library Programs? Results of a Focus Group Evaluation

lyn_hay's insight:

This study employed a formal external evaluation of school community perceptions and understandings with regard to school library impact. The researchers conclude that "reaching out to stakeholders in an organized, purposeful way, and not in a crisis mode, garnered substantial support for school libraries and school librarians". They also found that "inviting stakeholders to learn about the research of the profession in a professional and inclusive environment allowed them to thoughtfully reflect on school libraries’ value and become school library champions." This study provides individual TLs and network, regional or state associations with strategies to implement as part of an advocacy campaign, particularly when stakeholders are provided with local examples of school library impact.

I think the real takehome message here for the TL profession is the importance of developing advocacy programs when school libraries exist and are making an impact. The idea being that advocacy when school libraries are in a position of strength can help establish a community of 'champions' to support school libraries if/when a challenge to their existence is raised.

Crittenden Middle School Library 2014: Role & impact of the school librarian

lyn_hay's insight:

Good school-based example of promoting the role and impact of the teacher librarian in one school - great use of the voice of the school leadership and classroom teachers describing the work of the TL. I like the way the TL is silent in this video clip - all we see from the TL is ACTION not words.

This could be used as a model for other school communities to capture the role, value and impact their TL.
