The school library plays a key role in supporting student learning and achievement, through providing access to a wide range of resources in our diverse and fast-changing 21st century information landscape.
Developing your library is divided into four parts:
The sub-sections within Managing your Library are broadly aligned to the four ‘enabling’ Guiding Principles in The school library and learning in the information landscape: guidelines for New Zealand schools. The two central principles, Reading and Information Literacy, are expanded further in two main sections of this website, Creating Readers and 21st Century Literacy and Inquiry .
The four ‘enabling’ principles of Service, Access, Information resources, and Place are reflected here under Purpose and Library Team (Service), Library online environment (Access), Your collection (Information resources) and Library physical environment (Place).
