From the Publisher"The author's purpose in this book is to describe how to use Information Power effectively and how to achieve the goal of winning a national award. She draws from 25 years of experience as a school library media specialist and the steps she took to win the NSLMPY in a high-school library in Virginia. Her description of the process is organized in seven clearly explained steps. Appendixes contain helpful forms and policy statements. Ruth Toor, a noted school library specialist, contributed the foreword to this well-written, unique, and important book."
"Although not every school media specialist will want to apply for the NSLMPY Award, this is a recommended purchase for the professional collection. School media specialists, district supervisors, and school administrators wishing to align their own libraries with the standards set forth in Information Power and improve library service to students and teachers will find the guidelines and suggestions helpful and easy to implement….Recommended."
