I’ve bveen meaning to link to this great post from Blue Skunk for a while:
A 12 Point Library Program Checklist for School Principals
“The simple checklist below can be used to quickly evaluate your building’s program with your building principal’s collaboration. It is not a good substitute for some of the ideas mentioned previously in this chapter, but it can provide a discussion starter for additional assessment efforts.
Rapid changes in technology, learning research, and the library profession in the past 20 years have created a wide disparity in the effectiveness of school library programs. Is your school’s library keeping current? The checklist below can be used to quickly evaluate your program.”
See the details in these categories following the link:
“1. Professional staff and duties
2. Professional support
3. Collection size and development
5. Curriculum and integration
6. Resource-based teaching
7. Information technology
8. Reference, networking & interlibrary loan
9. Planning/yearly goals
It’s not a bad list for self-assessment of a school library either.
