Rhode Island Educational Media Association.
Helpful hints are provided to keep the library media specialist visible, expand resources, identify constituencies and resources, and keep the library from being taken for granted. Library media specialists must recognize that they are faced with a kaleidoscope of constituencies, beyond students and teachers, in local businesses, parents, school officials, and other libraries. Similarly, they deal with a kaleidoscope of roles in relation to each of the constituencies. Practical tips are given for the communication that keeps the library from being taken for granted. A resource list of governmental agencies; graduate study programs; grant agencies; state, regional, and national professional organizations; and advocacy groups is provided. Ten golden rules for obtaining grants are listed. (SLD)
