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, from traditional low-tech options to the latest developments. This book also describes how the school librarian interacts with and works with the technology. This starting point is a detailed picture of how the school librarian can build a technology-rich library.
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. Also discussed is the creation of technology plans in order to look to the future. This up-to-date overview of technology will provide soon-to-be school librarians, as well as current school librarians, the background and breadth to realize the potential they have for improving library services to children.
