The Atlas of New Librarianship online

„The Atlas of New Librarianship“ von 2011 ist kostenlos online. Darin gibt es ein Kapitel zum Thema „School“ der Schulbibliothekarin Buffy Hamilton (S.368-370, via The Scout Report – Volume 26, Number 43):

„What is the goal of a library? What is the work of a librarian? Perhaps, „a new librarianship“ has emerged, an expanded role „based not on books and artifacts but on knowledge and learning.“ To facilitate this, librarians must embrace an expanded role, too: „to improve society through facilitating knowledge creation in their communities.“ R. David Lankes, an award-winning scholar and director of the University of South Carolina’s School of Information Science, makes these claims in The Atlas of New Librarianship, a book he published in 2011. The next year, the book won the 2012 ABC-CLIO/Greenwood Award for the Best Book in Library Literature. Now freely available under a Creative Commons License, readers can download the book as a PDF or ePub file. Its in-depth insights encapsulate „input from hundreds of librarians and professors from 14 accredited library programs, 25 formal presentations to more than 50 conferences, and 14 publications.“ And, since its initial publication, the Atlas added new indexes (highlighted in the Expanding the Atlas section).

Einleitung des Kapitels „School“:

„How are contemporary school libraries inviting and creating spaces for rich conversations that lead to learning with students? How can expanding the concept of information literacy act as a catalyst for knowledge construction? How might school librarians get away from the traditional emphasis on “information objects” in the library space and instead posit the facilitation of learning as the primary mission of the school library? If school librarians are in the change business, how can we disrupt a standardized test-driven culture in favor of an inquiry-driven paradigm that is directed by conversations rather than knowledge consumption? The concepts of new librarianship support school libraries’ efforts to achieve these program goals.“
