Library Media Connection

"This collection of more than 65 articles written for Library Media Connection from 2003 to 2006 is a virtual treasure trove for library media specialists. The collective wisdom and experience of some of the best and brightest practitioners in this field are gathered together and are available at the fingertips of both new and experienced professionals. The book covers the very practical everyday issues such as scheduling and overdues, and also provides invaluable information on data gathering, facilities planning, professional development, the role of the library in the world of standardized testing, the technological future of libraries, and much more. Each article is clear, concise, and information rich. The issues and ideas that are addressed demonstrate how multifaceted this profession is. This comprehensive, well-organized book is an invaluable resource for all library media specialists and should be required reading for every school administrator."

School Library Journal

"The advantage of this collection is that it brings together a diversity of topics in articles written by educators in the field, as well as by school library media specialists who represent perspectives from elementary, middle, and high school libraries situated in urban, suburban, or rural areas. The articles vary: some incorporate a more rigorous approach in relating theory and standards to practice than others; some articles deal with perennial topics, such as advocacy, budgeting, collaboration, scheduling, information literacy, assessment, and copyright; others discuss issues, such as the relation between No Child Left Behind (NCLB) and the shcool library media center, the teaching of reading strategies, or how to best incorporate new technologies into the school library program. Excluded are articles on lesson plans and book-related topics. There is an appendix containing resources for each section and an author, title, and subject index. This collection can be especially helpful for new school library media specialists who are looking for ways to incorporate tried-and-tested best practices, based on the principles of Information Power: Buildling Partnerships into their own programs. As the authors suggested, some articles could also be used as starting points for discussions in educaitonal settings. It is a usefull collection that can supplement research articles and other books on organization and management in the school library field."

Articles previously published in Library Media Connection magazine, focusing on "advice and descriptions of best practices," are divided into five sections. The advantage of this collection is that it brings together a diversity of topics in articles written by educators in the field as well as by school library media specialists who represent perspectives from elementary, middle, and high school libraries situated in urban, suburban, or rural areas. The articles vary: Some incorporate a more rigorous approach in relating theory and standards to practice than others; some articles deal with perennial topics such as advocacy, budgeting, collaboration, scheduling, information literacy, assessment, and copyright; others discuss issues such as the relation between No Child Left Behind (NCLB) and the school library media center, the teaching of reading strategies, or how to best incorporate new technologies into the school library media center program. Excluded are articles on lesson plans and book-related topics. There is an appendix containing resources for each section and an author, title, and subject index. This collection can be especially helpful for new school library media specialists who are looking for ways to incorporate tried-and-tested best practices, based on the principles of Information Power: Building Partnerships for Learning (ALA, 1998/VOYA August 1999), into their own programs. As the authors suggest, some articles could also be used as starting points for discussions in educational settings. It is a useful collection that can supplement research articles and other books on organization and management in the school library field. Reviewer: Hilary Crew
