I really want principals and administrators to see this. Some teachers and even librarians need it too–as a reminder or as inspiration. It would be awesome if SCASL could make one of these too.

My friend Frank Baker posted this on our SCASL listserv recently and included a link to this article: With the increased popularity of social media have come more bullying, cheating and privacy concerns. Now, some are questioning whether schools — where students learn many lessons in morality — should include social media etiquette as part […]
Our USC School of Library and Information Science school library intern Lori Willis-Richards created this awesome book display in our Dorman library during November. We are going to sponsor a contest in which our students must guess the books. http://www.flickr.com//photos/c_nelson/sets/72157632042431512/show/ Want a taste? I don’t have all the pics, and we know we need to fix one, but […]
Last year I convinced one of our art teachers to take on a sculpting project using weeded books. We were all (library staff, administrators, art department and students) very pleased with the outcome of those weeded book art sculptures. I didn’t even have to ask this year.

Cathy Nelson’s Professional Thoughts!!) But I do think some of the responses were worthy of blogging. So here […]
So I’m sitting here tonight listening/viewing the Alan November keynote from the SIGMS Breakfast at ISTE. During this keynote he polled the audience to see how many were familiar with Eli Pariser, his book, and/or the Ted Talks video. Oh my, only maybe THREE acknowledged awareness of it. I blogged it May 8, 2011 and […]
Today our library participated in a South Carolina Association of School Librarians’ Snapshot Day. This is an effort to capture the essence of what happens in a library on a single day. Here are the numbers we crunched, but this does not show everything. I spent time visiting two classes today to introduce and go […]
This has been a reoccurring question lately in the library, and there is no shortage of dystopian novels to read. After reading other library related blogs suggesting titles, and factoring recent ones I had read too, I decided to create a display for our students that could help them select another read as enjoyable as […]
