Sometimes we find the perfect website. And sometimes, the best resource we can provide is connecting that student with a trained guidance counselor.<br />C O M M U N I T Y<br />Librarians connect students to the larger school community, providing a space of unity—a hub of campus life not fractured by grade, ability, or personal identity.<br />

  38. 38. Planning For The Future<br />The Increasing Need For Schools to Teach Information Literacy<br />On October 1st, 2009, President Barack Obama signed a <br />Proclamation declaring that October be designated <br />“Information Literacy Awareness Month” <br />in the United States. <br />“Over the past decade, we have seen a crisis of authenticity emerge. We now live in a world where anyone can publish an opinion or perspective, whether true or not, and have that opinion amplified within the information marketplace.” <br />“Though we may know how to find the information we need, we must also know how to evaluate it.”<br />“…institutions such as libraries and universities…can help separate truth from fiction and signal from noise.”<br />President Barack Obama<br />
  39. 39. Planning For The Future<br />The Increasing Need For Schools to Teach Information Literacy<br />From President Obama’s Proclamation Declaring Information Literacy Awareness Month<br />“Our Nation’s educators and institutions of learning must be aware of—and adjust to—these new realities. In addition to the basic skills of reading, writing, and arithmetic, it is equally important that our students are given the tools required to take advantage of the information available to them.”<br />“The ability to seek, find, and decipher information can be applied to countless life decisions, whether financial, medical, educational, or technical.” <br />“An informed and educated citizenry is essential to the functioning of our modern democratic society, and I encourage educational and community institutions across the country to help Americans find and evaluate the infor­mation they seek, in all its forms.”<br />
  40. 40. Planning For The Future<br />The Increasing Need For Schools to Teach Information Literacy<br />“Information literacy has progressed from the simple definition of using reference resources to find information. Multiple literacies, including digital, visual, textual, and technological, have now joined information literacy as crucial skills for this century.”<br />Standards for 21st-Century Learners<br />WASC has only recently added an “Information Literacy” component to its evaluation of colleges seeking WASC accreditation.<br />The Educational Testing Service (ETS) has just recently released iSkills, its first-of-a-kind student assessment that tests Information Literacy competencies.<br />California recently launched its Digital Literacy Initiative, designed to improve the Information Literacy skills of all Californians.<br />Every study conducted has shown that the Information Literacy skills taught in a strong library program with qualified personnel results in higher student achievement and increased standardized test scores.<br />
  41. 41. Planning For The Future<br />Facilities: The Library Learning Commons<br />GUHSD Educational Specifications for Library Learning Commons Facilities were developed in 2009-2010, over several months of meetings between district teacher-librarians, architects, facilities planners, and others. It was a truly collaborative process.<br />Excerpt from GUHSD Ed Specs for Library Learning Commons Facilities:<br />“Each site master plan will include a Library Learning Commons (LLC) designed as a flexible, student-centered facility that provides: easy access to the LLC’s print and electronic collections; state-of-the-art technology for research, coursework, and direct instruction; moveable furniture allowing for multiple seating arrangements; teaching/study areas that can be reconfigured for a variety of uses…”<br />GUHSD Library Council’s Guiding Principles for Future Library Learning Commons Facilities<br /> <br /><ul><li>Student learner as primary focus of all decisions
  42. 42. Flexibility that allows space to be configured in multiple ways (movable furniture, partitions, shelves, equipment, etc.)
  43. 43. State-of-the-art technologies
  44. 44. Space designed to accommodate future technologies
  45. 45. Supervision and safety are top priorities
  46. 46. Welcoming and comfortable
  47. 47. Abundant natural and artificial lighting
  48. 48. Environmentally responsible
  49. 49. Designed and built as part of a holistic, campus-wide vision
  50. 50. Teacher-Librarians as active participantsin all aspects of the design process
  51. 51. Design that factors in ergonomics, multiple learning styles, and the needs of students and staff with disabilities</li></li></ul><li>Thank<br /> You...…<br />For more information about the wonderful world of library services, please visit the GUHSD Virtual Library Learning Commons and click on <br />“About VLLC / Library Program Resources.”<br />library.guhsd.net<br />
