Technology and the school library: a comprehensive guide for media specialists and other educators
Technology has become one of the three main areas of focus for school librarians, along with collaboration and leadership. To meet the growing need in this area, Technology and the School Library provides an overview of the types of technologies used in school libraries and describes how the school librarian interacts with and works with the technology. Major topics covered in this volume include information resources in the school library, the different varieties of educational software available, resources available via the web, and the importance of creating a school library web site. This book also addresses tools that can be used in classrooms and technology administration--everything from automation and filters to security on student computers and security systems in general. This up-to-date overview of technology will provide school librarians the background and breadth needed to realize the potential they have for improving library services to children.
