Uncover all of the critical information and guidance you'll need to adeptly manage any school library in this valuable new resource. Co-authors Barbara Stein Martin, an experienced professor of school librarianship, and accomplished school librarian Marco Zannier 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: Administrator, 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; and, 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.
