SLJ's 2011 Technology Survey: Things Are Changing. Fast
Kenney, Brian
School Library Journal, v57 n5 p28-33 May 2011
Despite the funding challenges nearly all school libraries face, many media specialists are optimistic about the role of technology in the school library, according to "School Library Journal's" ("SLJ") 2011 Technology Survey. But in spite of the general optimism, others point to some significant obstacles: technological innovations are often hampered by poor funding, lack of time, and unsupportive administrators. Most of the excitement about the future stems from the emergence of ebooks and mobile devices. Combine these hot developments with dynamo media specialists who see themselves as their school or district tech leaders, and some schools may well be on the verge of a new era.
