Creating School Librarians for the 21st Century
Is your library school old school? New standards and guidelines point to the library as a vibrant learning commons, but are the procedures and practices taught in library school changing enough to ensure that this will happen? Attendees will engage in preparing a new model of school library education. Come with your ideas of what new librarians should be learning and doing. Help change the field, one new librarian at a time!
