Library Media Connection (November/December 2011)
This book presents a realistic overview of what the current role of school libraries in the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programs looks like. Topics include explanations of programs and curriculum, learner profiles, academic honesty, and how teachers, administrators, and students perceive and use the school library. In the absence of even a minimal requirement for a library and resources in official IB standards, the book provides practical strategies for involvement and program development. Appendices, resource lists, research used, and suggested tip sheets for students comprise some of the dense text, which often reads like a research paper. Overall, the book is a reality check for all media specialists, and will be especially useful for those working in an IB school. Glossary. Mary Alice Anderson, Online Professional Development Instructor, University of Wisconsin-Stout, Menomonie, Wisconsin [Editor's Note: Available in e-book format.] RECOMMENDED
