What is the name of your school?
Me? Well....I've been a librarian for 24 years and I've worked in different types of libraries (public school, private school, academic, and at a special school for the blind). I currently write the "Digital Resources" column for School Library Journal and I'm always looking for something "new and exciting" to explore. I'm taking a break from the workforce for just a bit to decide what I REALLY like about this profession and focus just on that part. Why make life more complicated?

I'm contemplating starting my PhD in LIS....or writing a book...or becoming a library consultant...or, well...you get the picture. Love the profession, love the challenges, need inspiration to keep myself motivated. I'm a "professional student" who has to work in order to put two kids through college (and one more in about 8 years!)

Greetings Shonda, 

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!

Sincerely,

Mike McQueen

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.
