Slouka, O.; Slouka, Z. J.
Intended to aid school librarians and media specialists who serve elementary and secondary school students, this guide explains the role of the school library in fostering student awareness of the universalism of human life and the understanding of international phenomena. Chapters focus on the nature of global education, its international dimensions, librarians' roles in the educational process, library-centered approaches, library-produced teaching materials, and library involvement in international education. Selected readings in international education and relevant instructional materials are listed, and an annotated address list of organizations and agencies which supply relevant materials is provided.
