The University of London’s Institute of Education (IOE) has released a study showing that children who read for pleasure are likely to do significantly better at school than their peers.
Only the school library, staffed by professionals, can provide the diversity of resources needed to keep students engaged in reading for pleasure. Studies have proven this. Why won't the powers that be listen?
School librarians are uniquely positioned to collaborate with teachers to infuse technology to support learning, assessment and curriculum within a collaborative learning environment. Teacher-librarians are connected to current research and can assist with best-practice in effective technology implementation.

Part of a good content marketing strategy, content curation is the art of finding, selecting, and sharing the best, most relevant content related to a particular theme or topic.
Libraries as Modern learning environments with lots of great examples from NZ in the post and the comments!
Libraries have the potential to significantly enhance the development of life-long learners through excellent provision of expertise, resources and spaces. There are some great NZ examples referred to in this post.
There are challenges for school libraries in balancing these spaces, particularly collection space. Once the overriding priority, have we gone too far in rationalising physical collection space and thus risked devaluing what is part of a library's unique value? Of course making virtual collections visible in our space is also important.
A 'now' library!
Pinterest is taking the social media world by storm, and it isn’t just popular with individual users.
Are you using Pinterest in your library? How are you using it? How is it helping you to serve your students' needs?
Interesting ways to use Pinterest for academic purposes. Will have to look more closely at this.
The Internet is ridiculously huge, so don't even think about trying to get your head around how much activity is taking place. Unless, that is, you limit yourself to one single minute.
Joyce Valenza shares her thoughts about e-books in the context of Springfield school library -
Definitely reviewing this collection. Thank you, Dr. V.
Have you got "makerspaces" in your library? Has your library team discussed how the makerspace concept might be developed in your library?

As librarians, we can’t wait for students to ask us questions. We know that! That’s why we’ve had “virtual” reference services since the early 2000′s. But it’s simply not enough to have an online presence. The key is being online where the students are. For most universities, this means the learning management system.
Parents of minor children have a special relationship with libraries. Most believe libraries are very important for their children and provide extra resources that are not available at home.
Library Juice Academy offers a range of online professional development workshops for librarians and other library staff, focusing on practical topics. Upcoming topics include:
- Certificate in User Experience (UX)- Certificate in XML and RDF-Based Systems- Embedded Librarianship- Do-It-Yourself Usability Testing
At one time not so long ago, literacy was defined as the ability to read and write and the school library was a place where students came to check our books to read or to find information in reference books.
Building a new library allows an opportunity to completely rethink the concept of what a library is.
A good explanation of the changing nature of the library as a place of interactive learning.
Just what I was trying to tell someone the other day. She said, "my students don't like to read novels, but I suppose I should take the kids to the library." To which I replied, "But they like to use the Internet to find things; wouldn't you like for them to do a better job of finding things?"
I like Information Coach --
