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.
