The School Library Media Specialist as Manager: A Book of Case Studies (Paperback)

Usually despatched within 2 weeks.


The challenge facing today's library media specialist is to design and deliver an effective library media program. Faced with the impact of technology, societal pressures, sweeping changes in American education, and varying economic conditions, today's practitioner must respond as a dynamic leader, planner, and manager. The School Library Media Specialist as Manager emphasizes practical management and is designed to be used by library media specialists in elementary, middle and high school settings, as well as those considering entering the field. The cases presented are broadly grouped along the guidelines suggested by Information Power and are then subdivided by type of media center. The resources found in the appendix and bibliography support the concepts found within the cases, and should be consulted when formulating new policies. Whether working in a rural or urban elementary school, on a fixed or flexible schedule, or with heterogeneous or homogeneous groupings in their libraries, all library media specialists will benefit from the case studies presented here. These cases develop the ability to analyze a situation and develop individualized practices or benchmarks for total quality service.
