Strategies for the Funding Crisis: Helping to Save Your School Library
Geier, Denise B.
Library Media Connection, v30 n3 p52-53 Nov-Dec 2011
In January 2007, the author wrote an article titled "Prevent a Disaster in Your Library: Advertise." In 2011, with the ongoing economic crisis that has caused so many school budget cuts, it is clear that advertising is no longer enough to save school librarians' positions. Librarians need to become even more aggressive as they market their services. Following the strategies offered in this article may not save the job of librarians, but they may cause others to pause and perhaps reconsider before cutting their position.
