  • Turning Advocacy into Action: Inclusive Makerspaces

    • Authors: Stacie Milburn
      Abstract: Advocacy in the school library typically includes securing funding, collection development that is representative of special populations, and campus leadership roles. The librarian can, and should, create services and programs that are inclusive and supportive of special populations. One special population of students that are often overlookded in the secondary school library are special education (SPED) students. Special education students can have a variety of cognitive or physical disabilities that make the act of learning more difficult without the proper support.

  • The Importance of School Libraries in Open Schooling, Sustainable
           Development, and Outdoor Learning

    • Authors: Francis Babayemi, Antonija Lujanac, Martina Paone, Sanja Skreblin
      Abstract: This paper reports the preliminary results of a 2020/2021 research project about open schooling, Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and outdoor learning in Europe and the role of school libraries in implementation and development of Open Education Resources (OER). School librarians support learners who have been unable to access schooling, but also the learners who are in school, but are not learning effectively. School librarians as Information and Communication Technology (ICT) and educational experts have all important skills to support teachers and students in development and using an OER. Innovative distance learning needs to be established for monitoring, evaluation, quality assurance, and continuous improvement. The SDGs could be achieved only if local communities ensure open access to education.

           Things are Happening… How Do We Communicate with Authorities and
           Decision Makers'

    • Authors: Fredrik Ernerot
      Abstract: As the IASL conference themes in Long Beach (2017), Istanbul (2018), and Dubrovnik (2019) have influenced progression, impact, and innovation around school libraries, it is interesting to focus on how ordinary school librarians best adopt fields where communication on a higher level marks the spot! The theme for this paper will work as a useful contribution to different methods, practically applied in Sweden for over ten years. Methods of communication that function as an inspiration to the higher governmental work and processes for school libraries, both on a national and international level. A wider scale on the following topics will be presented - mainly to create a developed knowledge adapted for school libraries. Knowledge ready to be transformed when participants return to their homes, communicating with their own contacts responsible for school libraries.

  • Achieving Transformational Change in the School Library Program

    • Authors: Lucy Santos Green
      Abstract: Much of our professional conversations revolve around the concept of change—changing the way books are organized in a library or changing policy on checkouts and fines. These changes are exciting and oftentimes come with quick recognition and praise. But when we discuss changes in the way we collaborate with teachers or the way the school library program situates itself in the daily life of a school, frustrations mount, and our desire for silver-bullet solutions becomes evident. Differentiating the types of change we seek may help us understand how to frame our expectations and set our professional goals.

  • Distance Education During the Covid-10 Epidemic as a Challenge and
           Opportunity for the Personal and Professional Development of a School
           Librarian

    • Authors: Metka Kostanjevec
      Abstract: Due to the COVID-19 epidemic, all schools had to close their doors last year. Classes moved to a virtual environment, and students and teachers were left without the opportunity to visit school libraries overnight. Therefore, the school library of the Prva gimnazija Maribor has operated smoothly throughout the time of the epidemic and strives to facilitate the work of students, teachers, and other employees as much as possible, continue to promote reading, develop reading and information literacy, and at the same time enrich the educational process. The article presents how we found our way to our readers despite the difficult situation.

  • Remembrance in Action: Educating and Responding to the Holocaust in
           today’s world

    • Authors: Margaret Lincoln
      Abstract: A school librarian and United States Holocaust Memorial Museum Teacher Fellow addresses the challenge of teaching 21st century learners about the Holocaust, demonstrating how to enrich collaborative instruction and library programing through innovative Museum resources. This paper highlights “History Unfolded,” the Museum’s growing database of WWII era newspapers promoting historical thinking and media literacy; “Experiencing History,” a primary source digital learning tool; the availability of Museum exhibitions and supplemental Holocaust projects that can be successfully implemented by school library practitioners worldwide.  As we face a resurgence of neo-Nazism and increased Anti-Semitism, school librarians can be transformational leaders in Holocaust education initiatives, encouraging an equitable and inclusive environment in the greater community.

  • Weaving a Storytelling Tapestry Using Computational Thinking

    • Authors: Jennifer Moore, Joe Sanchez, Alissa Tudor
      Abstract: Computational thinking is a way of formulating a problem so that a computer can find a solution. It involves looking for patterns within multiple sets of data and using algorithmic thinking to find solutions. In this way, it becomes a critical literacy for future-ready youth. In this paper the authors share partial results from a National Forum on Computational Thinking funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services, explaining computational thinking, exploring cross-cultural connections of the story sequence, and sharing how computational thinking can be used to create and analyze a story within the context of this story sequence.

  • Promoting Ethnic and Religious Diversity for the Nigerian School Children:
           A Preliminary Study

    • Authors: Grace Onyebuchi
      Abstract: The  aim  of  this  study  is to  provide  evidence  on  the  school  library  as  an  important  medium for promoting ethnic and religious diversity among the Nigerian school children. Though the issue of  diversity  continues  to  evolve and  expand  in  the  21st  century  to  include dimensions  of  race, ethnicity,  gender,  culture,  abilities,  sexual  orientation,  socio-economic  status,  age  and  religious preferences  (Perrault & Mardis,  2015), the Nigerian  nation is  presently  being  troubled  by  the  crisis  related  to ethnic  and  religious  groups.  The  education  system  seems  not  to  be  doing  much  in  encouraging coexistence among the citizens. The school library serves as a safe place for addressing these issues of ethnicity and religiosity among learners from diverse backgrounds in the Nigerian school system in which the school timetable is busy with a lot of passive learning activities. Even though ethnic and religious diversity should be addressed in a normal classroom environment, there is still a continuous rise in the lack of ethnic and religious coexistence in Nigerian community which has brought about religious  rivalry  and  ethnic  bigotry  in  the  different  communities  of  the  nation (Akwanya, 2015; Ojo, 2016).  This has continually led to a greater output of school children who are not ready to welcome other  cultures  and  religious  beliefs  when  they  become  adults;  thus  steering  violence  among  other members of the community.

  • Walking a Mile in Their Shoes: Empowering Learners Through A Human
           Library!

    • Authors: Kerry Pope
      Abstract: Many different events and experiences shape our lives. Everyone has their own unique story.  Just like a book, the stories inside people are fascinating!  When personal stories are shared with others they can become extremely powerful resources. They provide our students with a wonderful opportunity to connect with diverse members of the school community and beyond, communicate with them, build relationships, empathise, explore, understand and learn. By participating in a ‘Human Library’ students acquire life skills, widening their understanding of others and the world. Your school library should have one!  Students are hungry for real life experiences and ‘living books’ inspire them!

  • Reading Promotion Programme on literature appreciation among the young
           adults in Sri Lankan Schools Conducted by the Ministry of Education

    • Authors: Prasanna Ranaweera
      Abstract: A pilot reading program as an action research project was introduced by The National Institute of Library & Information Sciences (NILIS) in order to inculcate reading appreciation among young adults in Sri Lankan schools.  A sample of 25 school libraries from the Maho Educational Zone was selected for the research study.  Each grade nine student studying in the above-selected twenty-five schools was given a young adult literature book to be read within fourteen days, after which the student was required to prepare a portfolio based on the book. The school librarians marked the students' portfolio pieces, and this practice was continued up to the beginning of the third semester, using various literary genres. The students completed the given task within the specified period. According to the students' final portfolio evaluation, it was seen that they had gradually developed their competencies under the affective domain based on the above curriculum. Eventually, the Ministry of Education implemented the above program among all the junior and senior secondary schools in Sri Lanka as “Books are the Best Friends” with the assistance of NILIS.

  • School Libraries Role in Connected Learning: Perception of School
           Librarians in Nigeria

    • Authors: Alice Bamigbola
      Abstract: Connected learning (CL) aims at bridging the gap between in-school and out-of-school learning, thus, learning now takes place not only in the classroom setting. Libraries as nexus of informal learning space are appropriate spaces for connected learning. Observation shows that CL has not been embraced in Nigeria. Therefore, this study examined the perception of school librarians on the roles of school libraries in CL, challenges of CL, and solutions. School librarians that attended the national workshop organized by the Nigerian School Library Association (NSLA) participated in the focus group discussion. The findings revealed perceived roles of school libraries in CL, challenges of CL in Nigeria, and solutions proffered.

  • "Single threads woven together in a tapestry": Dispositions of
           Teacher-Librarian Leaders

    • Authors: Jennifer Branch-Mueller, Joanne Rodger
      Abstract: This generic qualitative research study examined if and how the dispositions of six exemplary teacher-librarians evolve after a move into a formal leadership role. All of the participants were classroom teachers and teacher-librarians prior to moving into leadership roles in their schools/university or districts. Findings from this study are organized and presented based on the leadership dispositions identified by Kimmel, Dickinson and Doll (2012) in their Dispositional Continua and include descriptors used by teacher-librarian leaders that help clarify each disposition. Further research is needed to create a valid and reliable disposition assessment tool for pre-service and in-service teacher librarians and TL leaders.

           Tapestry of Inclusive Library Practice

    • Authors: Elizabeth A. Burns
      Abstract: Libraries should be inclusive spaces for all patrons. It is imperative today’s librarians are equipped to infuse diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) theory with best practice when establishing policy and procedure. Library preparation programs must prepare the next generation of librarians to meet the needs of a diverse population, however, there are no established protocols in LIS education for training pre-service librarians in DEI. This exploratory study examines how one class used a culturally responsive pedagogy (CRP) framework to study issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion in library services. Findings suggest LIS students who interrogate their own bias and integrate thoughtful equity behaviors adopt greater empathy and DEI strategies

  • Services for Preschool Children in School Libraries: A Call to Action

    • Authors: Maria Cahill, Bobbie Sartin Long, Denice Adkins
      Abstract: The quality of learning environments and interactions in the first years of life set the stage for school success and have lasting impacts on mental and physical health and wellbeing across the lifespan, and even life expectancy (Wong, Odom, Hume, Cox, Fettig, et al, 2014; Reynolds et al., 2011). Libraries are positioned to provide rich learning opportunities for young children and their caregivers (Institute of Museum and Library Services, 2013, 2015; Urban Libraries Council, 2007). Library programs for young children, offered in nearly all public libraries in the United States support school readiness and educate parents about meaningful ways to interact with their children (Becker, 2012; Burger & Landerholm, 1991; Cahill, Joo, & Campana, 2019; Campana et al., 2016; de Vries, 2008; McKechnie, 2006; Mills et al., 2018; Smardo, 1984; Williams, 1998), but it is unclear what, if any, programs are offered for young children and their families through school libraries.

  • The Paradigm Shift from Books to Graphic Novels: The Coherence and
           Aesthetics of Graphic Narratives

    • Authors: Sreevidya Devanand
      Abstract: This paper focuses on the seemingly important aspects of graphic novels that make them a remarkable genre of literature. The aesthetics and the power of illustration are taken into consideration in detail in the study. Maus by Art Spiegelman and Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi are taken as case studies. The radically different style used in Persepolis challenged the popular convictions on storytelling and its success as a graphic novel has profoundly influenced many Middle Eastern writers. To determine the efficacy of graphic novels, a survey is conducted among school students. Analysis is drawn from the survey and demonstrated with the help of graphs and pie charts.

  • Capturing the Information-seeking of Students Employing a Wearable Camera:
           Discussions of Application in School Libraries

    • Authors: Nancy Everhart
      Abstract: Utilizing wayfinding, think-aloud protocol (TAP), retrospective think-aloud protocol (RTAP), and a wearable camera, the actions, thoughts and feelings of an autistic college freshman and a neurotypical peer are recorded as they navigate their campus library in search of materials. The library website, virtual maps to resource locations, and library workers served equally as enablers and barriers to both students in their information seeking. This proof of concept study demonstrates that participant viewpoint ethnography is a viable research methodology that could be applied in school libraries for both neurotypical and autistic students.

  • Librarians: Bridges to College Readiness

    • Authors: Lesley Farmer
      Abstract: Teacher librarians often have to show their value in order to continue to provide their services, so being able to demonstrate how they help prepare students to be college-ready would reinforce the importance of professionally-led school libraries. This situation led to the research question: what relationship exists between the presence of a high school teacher librarian and freshmen college students’ academic success' To answer this question, this study examined five years of a large comprehensive university’s freshmen data about their course load, their first semester GPA, and characteristics of the high school from which they graduated. Findings revealed the impact of the high school librarian and students’ economic status.

  • Teachers' Perceptions of Students' News Literacy

    • Authors: Lesley Farmer
      Abstract: People need to consciously and critically analyze and evaluate mass media messages, especially in the light of increasing fake news; they need to be news literate. The logical time to start teaching such literacy is in K-12 educational settings so that all individuals have the opportunity to learn and practice news literacy. To concretely ascertain California middle and high school students’ level of news literacy, their teacher librarians were surveyed. Not only did the respondents indicate a need for news literacy instruction, but they also indicated that little curriculum attention was given to that need. Moreover, teacher librarians and classroom teachers need training on news literacy. Fake news is a wake-up call to educators and the community at large to gain competency in critically analyzing fake news in particular, and information in general.

  • Multidimensional Approaches to Illustrate to Digital Divide among K-12
           Students

    • Authors: Cary Jim, Sarah Evans, Alison Grant
      Abstract: In this paper, we share the initial findings from a multi-disciplinary project by Team D2IE (Digital Divide and Inclusion in Education), the recent first-place winner of the Global XPRIZE Education Open Data Challenge, where they investigated how digital infrastructure and internet connectivity varies among K-12 students at the county level across the United States. Two quantitative measures (Student Digital Opportunity and Benefit-Cost Ratio) and three interactive maps were developed from socio-technical and economic perspectives to support decision-making. The three interactive maps allow stakeholders to evaluate digital access, usage, cost, and economic benefits at the county level across the country.

  • Promoting School Libraries' Support of Investigative Learning in Art
           Classes: A Case Analysis

    • Authors: Akiko Kuroda, Kanae Suzuki
      Abstract: In this study, 25 reports of art classes were surveyed to analyze school libraries’ ability to support investigative learning in art classes and to propose methods for doing the same. The results suggest that school libraries can support all stages of students’ investigative learning in art classes, including those where students learn about ideas or concepts of the work. The most frequently reported activity was utilizing different types and characteristics of media. In collaboration with art teachers, school libraries are required to work to prepare and support students’ access to various media, in order to deepen their investigative learning.

  • Enabling School Librarians to Serve as Instructional Leaders of Multiple
           Literacies

    • Authors: Melanie Lewis
      Abstract: Research has demonstrated that school leaders have little to no understanding of the instructional leadership role of the school librarian and have received little to no training in how to lead this population (Lewis, 2018; 2019). Though the standards of the school library field state that school librarians should be equipped and able to serve as instructional leaders of multiple literacies in K-12 education, barriers exist that inhibit this from becoming a reality in many schools. One of these barriers is a lack of administrative support in the form of a district library supervisor to develop a vision for and provide support to the district’s school library program and its personnel. Very little research has been conducted to examine the support needs of in-service school librarians (Weeks et al., 2017), and no research has been conducted to explore how to equip existing leadership to effectively lead its population of school librarians in a school district that lacks an official district library supervisor. The purpose of this study is to explore how school district leaders can foster the development of an effective school library in which school librarians serve as instructional leaders of multiple literacies.

  • Implementing STEM-related Activities for School Aged Users

    • Authors: Virgilio Medina Jr., Ross J. Todd
      Abstract: Published literature acknowledges the importance of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) education in various educational institutions and its contributions to the future of a nation’s economy. This paper focuses on successful library STEM-based programs that were undertaken from August to September 2019 for school-aged users in a public library. This paper also explores users’ perceptions in attending STEM-based activities in the library as well as their feedback on how future library programs on STEM could further be improved. These findings seek to provide new perspectives for librarians, educators, teachers, and staff in creating opportunities for STEM-based initiatives in an informal learning environment.

  • Teacher Support for Subject Study in School Libraries: A Case Study on the
           Faculty for Teachers for Subject Learning in School Libraries in Japan

    • Authors: Matsumi Ohira
      Abstract: Although school libraries are found in all elementary, middle, and high schools in Japan, 40% of schools nationwide have 11 classes or fewer wherein the appointment of librarians has been suspended currently; moreover, 6,838 schools have neither appointed nor assigned school librarians. Subject learning necessitates collection and usage of appropriate materials and requires specialization in the school education system, such as the use of curricula. Proper staffing alone is not adequate to resolve these issues. For the contemporary world with rapidly developing information devices, this paper proposes school library management methods involving improvements such as the use of reference devices by employing information and communication technology (ICT) and artificial intelligence (AI), which is not limited to personnel assignment, through investigation into the roles played by the human staff.

  • How is the School Library Used' Mapping the Use of an Upper Secondary
           School Library

    • Authors: Heidi Kristin Olsen
      Abstract: To be able to secure an evidence-based development of the library service at a large upper secondary school in Norway, a multi method study was conducted to map the use of the library.   Findings show that the library is used a lot by the students from all different branches. The main use is by students working on schoolwork sitting together with others. A stable part of the users prefers to work in the quiet area. Both teachers and students expressed a high degree of satisfaction with the library staff and emphasised the importance of the librarians' presence and availability for the users, both professionally and as responsible adults. Teachers and students alike perceived the library space as an attractive and very important physical place for students to work. A discussion of strengths and challenges of adequate methods for mapping school library use is included. Most research on school libraries concentrate on student achievement and cooperation between librarians and teachers. These are of course essential areas of concern and importance when it comes to discussing the position and function of school libraries. Nevertheless, the use of the libraries has had much less focus yet constitutes an important research area to understand the health of any library and its services. In this article we present results from a study of the use of an upper secondary school library. From 2016 to 2019, several studies were conducted relating to the use of the library at a Norwegian upper secondary school. These studies were a cooperative project between staff at the library and the Oslo Metropolitan University. The school management staff were also involved in choosing the research focus of the study.  In this paper, the methods used and some of the findings are presented.

  • Bibliotherapy Intervention for Combating Aliteracy in High Schools: School
           Libraries to the Rescue

    • Authors: Fadekemi O. Oyewusi, Margaret O. Abimbola
      Abstract: Aliteracy, the lack of interest in reading by capable readers had been observed to be prevalent among high school students and this has been a source of concern for education stakeholders. This study examined the remedial influence of bibliotherapy in reducing aliteracy among high school students in Ilesa, southwest Nigeria. The objectives of the study were to discuss the prevalence of aliteracy and examine the importance of reading among the high school students as well as describe the remedial impact of bibliotherapy in combating aliteracy among the high school students. All the 18 participants who identified as aliterates were exposed to Focus Group Discussion (FGD) which involved bibliotherapy. Content analysis was employed to analyse the responses of the participants to self-designed questions after the bibliotherapy sessions. The participants affirmed that exposure to bibliotherapy sessions helped in reducing aliteracy irrespective of their gender and that they needed the support of their parents to sustain an appropriate attitude to reading.  Therefore, school librarians with the knowledge of bibliotherapy could be of help in reducing aliteracy among the high school students.

  • Placement of Actor Network Theory in School Library Environment Research

    • Authors: Natalie Parker
      Abstract: Actor Network Theory (ANT) takes on the position that non-human objects which alter the behavior of people with which they share an environment are actors exerting force into the environment. While ANT has been used in education since the late twentieth century, it has not yet seen utilization in school library environments research. As a result, there remains a significant gap in the way school library environments are studied. This literature review seeks to make a case for the importance of including ANT in school library environments research. By taking a closer look at the design and inclusion of specific objects within the school library environment, we can better equip school library spaces for the needs and wants of the students to which the library belongs.

  • Commonwealth Caribbean Disability Access Policies: Access to Educational
           Institutions and Libraries

    • Authors: Paulette Stewart, Mark-Jeffery Dean
      Abstract: Disability Acts are aimed at providing disabled students with both physical and intellectual access to education. The research takes into account UNESCO’s mission and Universal Declaration of Human Rights (1948) that education as a fundamental human right lies at the heart of equal access. The document analysis approach was used to select six Caribbean countries’ disability Acts to examine the kind of access indicated for educational institutions and libraries. The roles of the stakeholders who are expected to implement the Acts were also examined. Additionally, document analysis was used to determine if what was seen in these Acts were actually being implemented. The disability Acts selected were those from a Commonwealth Caribbean country that developed national policies or acts on disability and that the Acts had specific articles on access to education for disabled persons. It was discovered that the clauses with regards to access and stakeholders’ role in implementing the Acts were very limited. There is also a significant gap between what is written in the Acts and what is actually taking place. One recommendation that was suggested was that each country treat their Act as a priority as equal access is a human right as emphasized by UNESCO.

           for Elementary School Students to Search and Understand Subjects in Social
           Studies from Multiple Dimensions

    • Authors: Kanae Suzuki, Hana Suzuki
      Abstract: This study developed an investigative learning support program that had two steps with multiple features including pillars of investigation for searching and grasping subjects of learning from multiple dimensions and then evaluated the goal achievement of the program. We examined literature and included reference materials and image maps, both with and without clues, and incorporated the tasks of revising or adding pillars of investigation in the program. Although there are some issues such as the consideration of instructions and prior support methods for students who have little experience in investigative learning, some students met the achievement goals of the program.

           Books

    • Authors: Vyacheslav Zavalin
      Abstract: Bibliographic metadata that represents resources for children and young adults is important in providing access to these materials for school library users. In school library systems this bibliographic metadata exists in the form of records that are usually created in collaboration between publishers and cataloging agencies. Children’s and Young Adults’ Cataloging (CYAC) Program has been working at the Library of Congress since the 1960s to provide services for school and public libraries. This paper reports analysis of genre and subject representation in bibliographic metadata for fiction books created by the CYAC program. This metadata is important for discovery and supports genrefication efforts.

    • Authors: Yunfei Du, Ming Zhu
      Abstract: Based on the surveys and the analysis of 72 school libraries in 6 provinces in 3 regions of China, this study found that although the development of school libraries in China has started, the core values and concepts of the school library services have not been reflected in its overall practice, and library infrastructure, services, and librarians’ credentials and school libraries’ digital resources have not improved significantly. There is a gap among school libraries between the economically developed eastern region and the poorer western regions, suggesting a more serious question of imbalance of school library services.
