    I got a credit for my first assignment for the semester, which means I need 30/70 to pass the course. Woo Hoo!

    Go work on pathfinders! I am thinking Life and Times of Shaksper. For examples I will look at

    Part 2: The provision of information and reference services to the school community.

    Posted by arlekeno on September 3, 2010

    Topic 5: Information Services to staff and students.

    What information needs of a Teacher can be met by a T.L.?

    information on curriculum planning
    information on a specific subject area (to keep up to date)
    information on current developments in teaching
    information on the use of ICT in the curriculum
    information on information literacy
    information on relevant print and electronic resources for learning and teaching in their subject area
    information on what the teacher librarian can do for them

    In my school I suspect the 3 most important would be:

    1. information on what the teacher librarian can do for them
    2. information on relevant print and electronic resources for learning and teaching in their subject area
    3. information on a specific subject area (to keep up to date)

     How to evaluate services we offer to staff and students.

    The reference interview.

    Many reference questions, when first put to a librarian, will be vague and unformed. Before directing the user to the likely source of information to satisfy his/her apparent need, the teacher librarian should find out:

    • what information is really required
    • how much information is required
    • at what level.
