|From the Editors: “Now More than EVER – Schools Need SCHOOL LIBRARIANS!”|
by Patsy Divver and Jan Koleszar, MSLA Forum Editors
Such was the theme for MSLA Conference 2009 – and so we follow it with the MSLA Forum focus through 2010. The evidence is there – from Ross Todd to Donald Leu, the 21st Century learner needs certified school librarians.
Thus, our Winter issue offers articles about perseverance, prominence, and promise. Change, as in the “Learning Commons” prototype, is the pathway to successful growth. Collaboration, with fellow professional groups and leadership programs, secures our role in education. Continuity of our programs, as demonstrated in the bookmark submissions, proves that we are an integral part of lifelong learning. .
Writing for the Forum….Join the Forum Staff, Earn PDPs
We consider any article that is of interest to MSLA members and that supports our mission. Tell us about your library program, best practices, special projects, etc. Most of us are the only School Librarian at our school; by writing an article, you can share your successes with colleagues who understand and support the profession.
If you find you’d be interested in writing an article or a column, please get in touch. The deadline to submit articles for the Summer Forum 2010 is Friday, May 7.
