Perceptions of School Library Programs and School Librarians: Perspectives of Supportive School Administrators

Via Scoop.itStudent Learning through School Libraries

Article in ‘Teacher Librarian’ February 2012 issue on the results of Donna Shannon’s study.

“The aims of the study were (1) to identify the source of school  administrators’ knowledge and understanding of school library programs, (2) to determine what school administrators should learn about the role of the school librarians as part of their preparation program, (3) to learn how they support the library programs in their schools and districts, and (4) to learn what school librarians can do to garner the support of their principals.

The study is part of a larger project that also examined (1) how principals evaluate school librarians and what competencies they think arc important for school librarians to possess, and (2) the perspectives of school library leaders and their insights related to what principals should know about school library programs and the work of school librarians.”

A recommended read for all practising TLs and TLs-in-training.
