Promoting your school library: target audience - parents

This document assists in the promotion of the role of the school library and the teacher librarian to parents.
 
It supports the short promotional film developed by ALIA Schools, 'Promoting your School Library', which gives an overview of the role that school libraries and teacher librarians can play by contributing to student success in learning in both primary and secondary school settings.
 
Five key stakeholders have been targeted as the audience for this film:

The school library workforce in Australia

ALIA 2016 National Conference, 29 August-2 September 2016, Adelaide: Engage, Create, Lead
 
[Peer reviewed] This paper engages with the issue, raised by Lonsdale in 2003, of a lack of data regarding national staffing trends in Australian school libraries. The authors review the literature available, including general census data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics, library sector-specific information, and data from the education sector (including school libraries). Particular focus is given to the Staff in Australian Schools survey, as well as its limitations. 

School librarians using digital technologies

ALIA National 2014 Conference, 15-19 September 2014 Melbourne : together we are stronger

Not only will this conference presentation make theoretical connections between schools, libraries, technology and how integral teacher-librarians are to this process; but it will also make strong links between school and public libraries and the opportunities that exist for ongoing collaboration, with the primary aim of establishing consistent messaging about knowledge-sharing and positive use of digital technologies.
