Abstract:

"This new book, Effective School Librarianship: Successful Professional Practices from Librarians around the World (2-volume set), provides a series of informative interviews with school/teacher librarians practicing in different parts of the world. It showcases the resilience, creativity and best practices from successful school librarians from Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia, and North and South America. The librarians interviewed come from all different schools and schools systems, from a tiny recently built school library in rural villages in Africa to the modern cities in Sweden, showing learning environment in different geographical, national, and cultural contexts, etc. Featuring 37 interviews with successful school librarians from across the globe, the volume lets us hear the stories from Australia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Canada, Croatia, Democratic Republic of Congo, Hong Kong, Iceland, Ireland, Japan, Nepal, New Zealand, the Netherlands, Nigeria, the Philippines, Serbia, Sweden, Thailand, Turkey, United States, Venezuela, Vietnam, and Zimbabwe, and many more. They tell about their creative and innovative school library projects, their unconventional reading programs, and their best practices and experiences in addressing the challenges of supporting basic literacy. A wide selection of methodologies and approaches are discussed, offering a global "voyage" through topics important in school librarianship. The 2-volume set also addresses recent advancements in information and communication technologies (ICTs), and the shift toward inquiry-based learning that impacts school libraries worldwide. The school librarians' best practices cover innovative ways to encourage students to (1) read voluntarily for pleasure and for information; (2) to gain basic information literacy skills for the navigation, evaluation and use of information; (3) and to develop competence as independent learners--a key factor for successful enquiry-based learning. The books are jam-packed with information that can be used by school librarians, teachers, school administrators and others in a variety of ways. Readers can borrow best practices from the experiences presented in the book, and the volumes can also serve as a strong voice for the practicing school librarians and the profession, through expanding the opportunities for professional sharing in the international school librarian community.?"--Provided by publisher.
