In today's schools, a disturbing trend is becoming apparent: a growing majority of students choose not to use the library facility. This situation must be remedied so that students can access the tools and the instructional help available to them from the professional staff.

It can be very difficult to break the habit of addressing time-consuming tasks that are no longer mission critical. Having a vision and plan is the best way to establish a new, more effective pattern. As the education system, technology, and the world continue to evolve, it is paramount for teacher librarians to have a strategic plan to overcome the challenges of today and tomorrow.

This book describes two types of strategic planning for teacher librarians. Each methodology is presented via a sequential approach to the planning process. The first section of the text addresses those who are pressed for time and are lacking some necessary resources. The second section explains the classical approach to strategic planning hit teacher librarians.
