Developing great collections, print and online, to support learning and literacy is a key role of the school library.
To support you in developing your school library collection (print and electronic) we include guides to creating a policy statement, budgeting, cataloguing your resources, and stocktaking.
A guiding statement is a policy document. It guides all those involved in leading and managing the library‘s development. This document will ensure your library collection supports the school’s educational goals, curriculum programmes, and student needs.
Written for staff in New Zealand school libraries, this guide outlines currently accepted practice for cataloguing library resources, and the processes for standards-based data entry.
