Uncover all of the critical information and guidance you'll need to adeptly manage any school library in this valuable resource. The authors present a practical tool to help you fully understand and confidently master the extensive services and skills involved in this always-evolving profession. Equally effective when read from cover to cover or used as a quick-reference handbook, you'll first learn to build a strong professional foundation through a helpful explanation of the basics, like setting goals, organization and time management, communication with stakeholders and a list of important professional documents. Read on to succeed in each one of the three major roles you'll adopt as a school librarian, including *Adminisgtrator, with instruction in budgeting, circulation and inventory *Information Specialist, which covers material selection, ordering, processing and arranging, databases and web sites and references *Teacher and Instructional Specialist, with guidance for teaching your school's curriculum, research assistance, collaboration and programming. Examples of best practices for each role are accompanied by easy-to-follow diagrams and images, and a ready-to-reference directory of essential sources and suppliers is packed with forms, resource lists and URL links to use again and again.… (more)

Practical strategies for use in managing a school library. Most are already in place for many, but even they will benefit from the ideas this book puts forward. Well articulated and there is encouragement to understand the fundamentals of this work but go beyond to current understandings and uses of the most cutting edge ideas in education. Will be excellent when paired with specific titles that extend the practical strategies of this book with theory from others. Organized so that it can be a "ready reference" tool for the teacher librarian whether seasoned or new to the profession. The directories for suppliers dates fast,but is at least a starting point for further investigation.
