A basic definition of "cyberbullying" is provided by Nancy Willard, director of the Center for Safe and Responsible Internet Use. She has defined cyberbullying as using the Internet or other mobile devices to send or post harmful or cruel text or images to bully others. The advent of social networking has highlighted cyberbullying. Library media specialists can be an advocate in fighting cyberbullying. They can work with teachers to instruct students about cyberbullying and how to combat it. (Contains 14 resources and 6 online resources.)
