A key challenge for every library media professional is how to simultaneously be both a leader and a collaborator -- how to be both proactive in shaping instruction and responsive to users' needs and requests. Here is a step-by-step strategic plan to help you develop and implement an effective library media program by integrating it into the total education environment. Designed for both new and experienced library media professionals, Part One of this practical manual covers all aspects of the school environment: students, curriculum and instruction, principals, school district administrators, and the community. Part Two shows you how to make the school library media program an integral part of the school's instructional program through interaction and collaboration with each of these communities. Techniques and action strategies related to teaching and learning outlined in detail include collaborative planning with teachers, flexible scheduling, collection development and maintenance, literacy development, information skills instruction, and program evaluation.
