  • Description

This book provides the school librarian with the skills, knowledge, and competencies that are needed to make a school library effective in the 21st century. The school's organization, and current learning and curriculum matters, are seen as equally important as the technical aspects of a school librarian's role. Linking all of these issues is management, either for a single-person unit or an organization with a large number of staff. The author uses case studies and comments from a wide number of British school librarians, thus drawing on a wide base of experience to provide a book that is relevant, informative, and, above all, thought-provoking.
