Cromartie, Kathy; Burns, Elizabeth – Knowledge Quest, 2019
To gather, contribute, connect, be a creative force, defend, and guide are demanding dispositions that make an excellent school library professional.

Allen, James – Knowledge Quest, 2017
If you stopped by and visited the author's school library in Eminence, Kentucky, it would be difficult to predict everything you might see and experience.

Mardis, Marcia A. – Knowledge Quest, 2017
As the sun rises over the horizon each day, we rarely get the opportunity to consider how the new day contributes to the month that forms part of a season that culminates in the year. A year's progress guides and shapes the development of all growing things. Though not necessarily in a tidy twelve-month cycle, while developing the new standards…

School library programs have measured success by improved test scores. But how do next-generation school libraries demonstrate success as they strive to be centers of innovation and creativity?

Richey, Jennifer; Cahill, Maria – Knowledge Quest, 2015

Stubeck, Carole J. – Knowledge Quest, 2015
Fixed scheduling is well-researched in the school library literature. We know from this research that information skills taught in isolation from curriculum content are not as relevant to students as skills taught in the context of what they already know (McGregor 2006). Constructivism is an approach to learning that posits individuals construct…

Lamb, Annette – Knowledge Quest, 2015
School libraries have been in existence since at least the eighth century. However, it wasn't until the twentieth century that the school library was seen primarily as "a source of enrichment for the curriculum, and a means of developing reading and study habits in the pupils" (Clyde 1981, 263). While the formats available and tools for…

Barnett, Cassandra – Knowledge Quest, 2015
Over the last century, school library standards have gone through a number of iterations, and expectations for student learning have evolved. While the school library of today looks and functions differently from the school library of the early 1900s, the vision surprisingly is still very similar. The goal of today's school library is to provide…
