A library without books?

7 Jun 2010
Description

A concerted analysis will find that there is a dramatic difference between a 'school library' and an information services unit, a difference that has to do with both perception and the actual situation.

There is a vital and growing need for information professionals with a strong understanding of teaching and learning to play a central role in the school's operations. The standing of the teacher librarian position, rightly or wrongly, is closely correlated to that staff member's success in integrating the latest information technologies into the school's educational program. Teacher librarians who have moved from the traditional model of the school library to the creation of an information services unit are today generally very well positioned to continue to play a significant role in schooling.
