I took the test today and was quite shocked on what was on it and more importantly what wasn't on it! There were ZERO questions on MARC records, OPAC, cataloging, book awards, the BIG 6, state standards, or Dewey Decimal…"

Hi all! I have a class assignment to read articles on a topic relating to information literacy. What's hot these days in this area? The teacher gave several suggestions but I thought I'd put it out to you librarians to see what's on your minds these days too! Thanks for your input. MaryBeth
"Linda, I know I'm not High School but thought I'd share. I have a Skype with an author set up (Suzanne Slade) in February and a session with our pen pal class in Texas happening soon that will have something to do with a science project.…"
"Does your high school let you Skype? I recently asked them to load Skype onto my classroom computer and was refused. Do you know of another way to use a web cam to bring people in? I am so excited because I just received a webcam from…"

HelloI have 2 questions for you Web 2.0 people! I will be podcasting with 2 other teachers using Skype and a Smartboard. I need to purchase a Webcam. I am looking for recommendations for my purchase.

I'm Mike McQueen, teacher librarian and founder of http://www.GettingBoysToRead.com. Like many school districts, we are in a financial crises. Our school board recently proposed to eliminate ALL 20+ middle school teacher librarians and also cut all 90+ elementary schools to half time. Since we are the biggest district in all of Colorado, we worry this will cause other districts to follow suit. We launched an online movement and are going to do our best to put up a good fight. If possible, please visit our Facebook page and "Like" us http://www.facebook.com/SupportSchoolLibraries . Adding a positive comment and sharing with your friends would help our morale as well. The board finalizes the budget soon so your timely support would be greatly appreciated!
Teacher Librarian at McLain HS

Mansfield University Scholarship Program – Begin in January 2012
In an ongoing effort to recruit a new generation of school library leaders, Mansfield University recently received a fifth Institute of Library and Museum Services (IMLS) grant to fund scholarships for its totally online School Library & Information Technologies Master of Education degree program with school library certification. If you know of an educator or non-certified librarian seeking school library certification, please pass along the news that we are still accepting applications for the spring 2012 semester.
The Master of Education program, ideally suited for working educators
with no time to drive to a university, offers a convenient and effective path to school library certification. For detailed information and contacts please refer to the Fulfilling the Promise homepage, at http://libweb.mansfield.edu/promise/, or contact Cynthia Keller, Department Chair email@example.com
