As if transitioning from library school or a different type of library job into the role of a school librarian wasn't challenging enough, just factor in today's straitened funding environment for the position itself. Librarians new on the job need expert advice on what to expect and how thrive, and since its publication in 2006 this guide has served as an invaluable resource for the new school librarian. From job search strategies and discovering work philosophy to the nitty-gritty details of creating acceptable use policies, this revised and updated edition, which includes a new foreword from Sarah Kelly Johns, shares the joys and perils of the profession along with a wealth of practical advice from decades of experience in school library programs. With this guide as a roadmap, new school librarians can

  • Tackle the job search with confidence, with tips on everything from polishing a résumé  and acing a job interview to ways of handling any potentially negative Google results and other digital footprints
  • Learn the secrets to successfully collaborate with teachers
  • Navigate new roles and responsibilities through orientation and organization
  • Create dynamic interactions with students to deepen their learning experiences
  • Master the art of communicating with the principal, IT experts, and vendors
  • Become familiar with school library technology, including e-book collections, online databases, and library management systems
  • Receive field-tested guidance on daily matters from budgeting and purchasing to advocacy and programming

The AASL Standards for the 21st-Century Learner, Partnership for 21st Century Skills, and Common Core State Standards are also thoroughly discussed. New school librarians as well as those already in the profession can set the tone for rewarding career with this one-stop, hands-on guide.
