School librarians need to engage with their staff and community to help define their role, raise their profile and make a real impact. Whether you’re working alone in a school library, a team member or a leader you’ll find practical advice about building these important business relationships in this book by library and education consultant Sarah Pavey.

Starting with the basics of what constitutes a team, The Networked Librarian gives an overview of the theory of group dynamics, change management, and effective communication set within a school library context. Chapters address common issues such as dealing with difficult people, collaborating with teachers, and working with parents to give school librarians the tools needed to be a key part of the school community. It also delves into how team working can enhance motivation, the development of self-esteem, and how to deal with more challenging situations for amicable resolution.
