This collection of case studies covers a wide range of issues, from collection development to communication, from curriculum collaboration to resource management, and includes overviews, suggested key readings, and discussion points. The work is designed to stimulate the reader to interpret, understand, and solve problems that most teacher librarians face; but the underlying issue is 'getting things done through people.' With an extensive bibliography.
