Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

This book provides practical ideas for beginning collaborators and experienced librarians who need to take a fresh look at this important topic. Through documented research, the authors present the many facets of leadership from the perspective of the principal and librarian. "Reverie," found at the beginning of each chapter, describes the reflections of an imaginary librarian on a specific situation such as proposing a weekly meeting with the principal. Vignettes contributed by school librarians describe positive dialogues they have had with principals. Advice about interviews includes asking the principal about the school library's function or discussing the partnership between administration and librarian. Common-sense suggestions are included for building rapport between the two. This process is expanded with ideas and sources for additional information. Vision, goals, communication, curriculum collaboration, standards, and evaluation of the library program are all addressed succinctly, yet with enough information to be useful to librarians. Appendixes include school library media program standards and principles. A very mild criticism of this book is the use of phrases that indicate a subservient attitude by librarians, such as "In a school library, this means a smile for that weary classroom teacher, a cup of tea proffered at the end of a long day, and someone to talk to."

Review

"With so much discussion regarding teacher-librarian and principal collaborative approach to leadership, and the relationship with the second principal/administrators....[a] nice balance between research and practice. It includes an excellent bibliography and list of relevant internet web sites."-Teacher Librarian
