Forecasting the Future: School Media Programs in an Age of Change
Library media specialists have traditionally been viewed in a number of different roles, from research advisor to science fiction expert, but primarily as the organizer and gatekeeper of the school's information resources, whether print or electronic. But the school library media specialist also plays the role of instructor, selecting appropriate materials for individual or group instruction, planning lessons, and team teaching with classroom teachers. This book examines the unique role of the library media specialist in a time of rapid change. Organized on the basis of selected principles for the media program, Forecasting the Future applies these principles within the context of the future of education. The authors draw on the day-to-day experiences of media specialists and supervisors to highlight the best practices in library media services and show how these practices will adapt as we move into a new century.
