Independent School Libraries: Perspectives on Excellence (Libraries Unlimited Professional Guides in School Librarians)

Independent School Libraries: Perspectives on Excellence (Libraries Unlimited Professional Guides in School Librarians) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Independent School Libraries: Perspectives on Excellence offers readers insights into best practices in library services for school communities, using examples drawn from independent schools of various sizes, descriptions, and locations across the United States. Two overview essays introduce a statistical analysis of independent schools. Each of the remaining essays provides perspective on a different aspect of library practice, including staffing, advocacy, assessment, technology, collaboration, programs beyond the curriculum, intellectual freedom and privacy, budgeting, accreditation, disaster planning, and more.

Because independent school librarians work across divisions and without a mandate to adhere to state or national standards, they have the freedom to explore and refine best practice in a school library setting. Fortunately, the ideas and methods they have developed, many of which are on display here, can be applied in any school library.

Book News Annotation:

This is a collection of twenty-one essays on best practices in independent school libraries. Topics covered include funding of independent school libraries, changes in technology services, advocacy for independent school libraries, minor's rights, the accreditation process, disaster planning, and staffing. Written for independent school librarians and library administrators, this reference includes an appendix containing the National Association of Independent School's guidelines of professional practice for librarians as well a template for a library performance assessment. Contributors are librarians from private schools in the US. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Freed of many of the restrictions that govern public schools, librarians in independent schools have a unique opportunity to develop new ideas and methods.
