Digital Underclass: What Happens When the Libraries Die? http://zd.net/baMfG3
As a part of its continuing advocacy efforts, AASL is collecting school library stories to compile into a printed piece. They are looking for short stories (one or two small paragraphs) on the successes of school librarians relating to education, college & and career readiness, equity, effective teachers, collaboration, leadership, ELLs, and increasing school performance.
The Marble Falls Public Library recently asked me to talk to them about collection development for children – especially what I learned at the April 24, 2010 state library workshop on the same topic. To get ready, I asked our members how they managed their own children’s collection.
You guys never fail to impress me. We got almost 50 responses, with over half coming from small libraries. What are your colleagues’ best ideas for keeping up with what to buy for kids? The answers can be found in the CTLS Best Children’s Selection Resources 2010.
