Description: From School Library Journal
This book provides practical ideas for beginning collaborators and experienced librarians who need to take a fresh look at this important topic. Through documented research, the authors present the many facets of leadership from the perspective of the principal and librarian. "Reverie," found at the beginning of each chapter, describes the reflections of an imaginary librarian on a specific situation such as proposing a weekly meeting with the principal. Vignettes contributed by school librarians describe positive dialogues they have had with principals. Advice about interviews includes asking the principal about the school library's function or discussing the partnership between administration and librarian. Common-sense suggestions are included for building rapport between the two. This process is expanded with ideas and sources for additional information. Vision, goals, communication, curriculum collaboration, standards, and evaluation of the library program are all addressed succinctly, yet with enough information to be useful to librarians. Appendixes include school library media program standards and principles. A very mild criticism of this book is the use of phrases that indicate a subservient attitude by librarians, such as "In a school library, this means a smile for that weary classroom teacher, a cup of tea proffered at the end of a long day, and someone to talk to."

Product Description:
School library media specialists know that a close collaboration between the school principal and themselves is critical in the development of an exemplary school library media program, but they are often unsure of how to establish and build on that collaboration. Using Information Power: Building Partnerships for Learning, the authors present a vision for a student-centered library program, showing methods librarians can use to learn to work together with their principals and teachers to build curriculum, incorporate state and national standards and guidelines, and implement technology. Interviews and vignettes from practicing school library media specialists and school principals give witness to the effectiveness of the program, highlighting examples of key points.
