If you're new to running a library or looking for a refresher, this book can serve as your first reference source for school library operation, providing overview information on a wealth of topics, lists of resources for more in-depth information, and coverage of current topics such as Web 2.0, fundraising, digital booktalks, and cybersafety.
Running a school library takes knowledge, planning, staffing, and experience. For school library staff members lacking previous library experience, specific library training, or a credentialed on-site librarian to provide help, the job goes from challenges to near impossible. Having a comprehensive library handbook is the next best thing to having an experienced librarian on staff.
With the extreme budget cuts most school libraries are facing, professional development resources for library support staff that improve library management efficiency are in great demand. This popular handbook provides an overview of many topics related to school libraries, collecting a vast amount of information together in one volume with an extensive index and selected additional resources.
Written in an accessible style, it provides a quick reference and overview information for the operation of school libraries that both experienced and new library staff will find useful. Designed to be read both cover-to-cover and utilized as a ready reference, the second edition of Where Do I Start?: A School Library Handbook has updated subject material that includes coverage of Web 2.0 applications, library web pages, reading books to students, digital storytelling, future trends in library automation, and more.
