Not Your Grandmother's Library!
Perez, Lisa
Learning & Leading with Technology, v38 n6 p16-19 Mar-Apr 2011
School libraries are an essential part of a complete school program. They provide an equitable, fiscally responsible strategy for sharing resources across grade levels and the curriculum while addressing core reading, information, and technology literacies. Students are still voracious readers of books in print, and now they consume a variety of electronic formats. This makes having a digital age library more important than ever. At no other time in history have students needed such pronounced information literacy to effectively navigate and use vast amounts of information. This article presents examples that highlight the work of a handful of savvy librarians who are leveraging technology to prepare students for a successful future. (Contains 11 online resources.)
