What librarians do…

This was a plea that came across my Facebook network tonight, and I am torn between laughing and crying.  But it does feel oh so good to laugh about it, seriously.  Molly Clark (from Syracuse) put it out there for herself and a friend who are taking a class (something related to Syracuse U’s Project Enable.)  Some […]

It is with utter shock that I have read this article about Los Angeles teacher librarians essentially being put on trial to prove they are qualified as teachers. The byline from the article reads: If state education cuts are drastic, the librarians’ only chance of keeping a paycheck is to prove they’re qualified to be […]

I’ve been working with a few classes these last ten days or so, showing them some “un-written” research projects.  My point to them is to try and turn their research into some really cool projects that are not only fun, but downright inspirational or creative.  Many examples shared were techy (Voicethread, videos, Glogster, etc.) But I […]

I had used the quotes feature, but it took away from the note so I removed them. I also embellished with a few […]

photo © 2008 Scott McLeod | more info (via: Wylio)As I reflect over the past year, I remember the knee-jerk reactions that I among many have had over the lack of respect for my profession as a school librarian.  The average non-library users lauds that the internet serves all their information needs and now ebooks […]

My Annual Library Report

There seems to be a demand to post/share our end of the year library reports (dictated by advocacy efforts to justify and save our jobs.) Somewhat incomplete since my colibrarian does not return until August, I have created one for our library.  It will be tweaked in August upon her return. 2010 Annual Library Report […]

So we recently had our title changed to “school librarian” by our professional organization, and although I felt like it was a set back, in the grand scheme of issues that need advocacy, seriously the name change was small potatoes.  But recent events have suddenly made that name change completely fall off my radar. President’s […]
