Knowledge Quest, v42 n1 p24-28 Sep-Oct 2013
When school librarians retire or move to other positions, they face the uncertainty that the school library programs they have worked tirelessly to develop are at risk. For the school librarian, the development of a library advisory committee (LAC) is a strategic investment of time and energy to develop grassroots support for the library program and maximize advocacy efforts with library stakeholders. This article discusses the importance of a LAC and some tips on how to create an effective active LAC.
