So says R. David Lankes in the opening moments of his presentation School Librarians as Facilitators for Learning embedded below. We represent the fundamentals of the future of libraries. Yes! High Five Folks! His Atlas of New Librarianship is a bible, a book to take so much out of.
He says: The mission of librarians is to improve society through facilitating knowledge creation in their communities. And he is talking to you school librarians.
I’m quite a lot in love with his messages, pretty much all of them. Watch this presentation and take on board what he is saying. He is going to give you lots of examples of how you can think about why you do the things you do. Not the what you do. Yes, it takes an hour but yes it is an hour well spent. Great PD. Really great PD.
It comes from here.
