Taking a strategic approach to the leadership of school libraries, this book raises important questions about the functions of the school librarian and sets out to encourage the reader to think outside the box for new approaches to traditional challenges. It aims to inspire and enable school librarians to think creatively about their work and the community in which they operate. Written by current leaders in the field, each chapter addresses the practical issues facing school librarians. This new edition has been fully updated to incorporate curriculum revisions, resource changes, developments in the use and integration of technology and new routes into the profession. Key topics covered include:

  • the librarian's vision and values;
  • bridging the gap between different visions for the school library;
  • identifying and understanding your community;
  • making a positive response to change;
  • keeping inspired and inspiring others in the library; and
  • integrating the library into teaching and learning.
This is an essential, thought-provoking book for all school librarians, practitioners in schools library services, and students of librarianship. It has plenty to interest school leadership, headteachers, educational thinkers, public library managers and local government officers and also has an international audience.
