The school library should be part of its school’s continuous cycle for improvement. As a result a resource has been prepared to assist school library personnel in the review of the school library.
This online forum is an opportunity to explore, over the next eight days, the reasons why the school library should be reviewed, unpack the resource School Library Resource Centre guidelines for self evaluation and reflection and identify how you can plan and implement a full or partial review of your school library.
You are warmly invited to join in this discussion so that we can gain a nationwide perspective on why and how the school library can benefit from a formal review process.
Task for Day 1
Please note that we will discuss Sections 1, 2 and 4 during our online forum. Section 3 will not be covered however you may like to complete the related checklist (found in Section 3 notes) in your own time to assess the facilities that you currently have.
Once you have read through the guidelines document, please feel free to post your first impressions. Posts will be approved by the administrator throughout the day.
We thank you for taking the time to participate in our first national event for 2015 and look forward to reading your comments, feedback and ongoing discussion points.
