Sources and Resources: A Handbook for Teacher-Librarians in British Columbia.
British Columbia Dept. of Education, Victoria.
The school library has a specialized function in that its collection and services support the curriculum for learning and the improvement of the instructional process; school librarians, properly designated the teacher-librarians, require special skills and training because, besides performing traditional librarian functions, they must also be teachers, informed about the curriculum and the teaching process. This handbook, intended for such 'teacher-librarians' in British Columbia, provides chapters on the role itself, support staff, school library policy, effective use of facilities and equipment, evaluation of school library services, learning resources inventory, selection, acquisition, and organization of learning resources, and circulation and security procedures. Appendices include selection tools for print and nonprint materials, periodicals and indexes; sources of vertical file information materials; subject headings for Canada and British Columbia; a sample policy for the selection of learning resources; an annotated bibliography; and a list of relevant addresses. An index is also provided. (JD)
