      The format of those resources—and ways to access them—will change, but the work of selecting, organizing, and teaching students and staff how to use those resources remains ongoing.
      Structure & Order
      Anarchy
      • We don’t want our students to believe everything they read or see.
      • We want our students to know how to find quality, professional resources/information.
      • We need to teach students how to have a questioning, discerning eye.
      • We want our students to be confident, capable researchers for life.
    • Librarians Bridge Needs and Resources:Organization and Accessibility
      Teachers know their content and what their
      academic objectives are; students know
      there is a lot of information out there and that
      it can be used to meet teacher expectations.
      Librarians connect what teachers want to teach
      and what students need to learn.
      As a response to the needs of students and
      teachers, district librarians conceived the
      dynamic, ever-changing world of the Virtual
      Library Learning Commons- the VLLC.

      Librarians are a constant in the lives of students all 4 years of high school, so we see students grow both academically and personally.
      Librarians find resources that help students with life’s challenges: divorce, death, self-esteem, finding a job, relationships, bullying, etc.
      Sometimes we find the perfect book. Sometimes we find the perfect website. And sometimes, the best resource we can provide is connecting that student with a trained guidance counselor.
      C O M M U N I T Y
      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.
    • Librarians Bridge Needs and Resources:Instruction and Guidance
      Teaching Students How To Use Resources…
      • Providingdirect instruction in the library, classrooms, and computer labs.
      • Familiarizing students with the tools of technology that are an essential part of a 21st century education.
      • Teaching students how to navigate in a sea of information—and misinformation—including how to find HELP when they are stuck.
      Teaching staff so they can teach students—forming a resource & information network.
      The end result is independent, self-directed learners who can navigate their way through information to efficiently and effectively find and use what they need.

    • Planning For The Future
      Technology
      Passive consumers of information will be left behind in the 21st century.
      Students must learn to be knowledge creators.
    • Planning For The Future
      The Increasing Need For Schools to Teach Information Literacy
      On October 1st, 2009, President Barack Obama signed a
      Proclamation declaring that October be designated
      “Information Literacy Awareness Month”
      in the United States.
      “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.”
      “Though we may know how to find the information we need, we must also know how to evaluate it.”
      “…institutions such as libraries and universities…can help separate truth from fiction and signal from noise.”
      President Barack Obama
    • Planning For The Future
      The Increasing Need For Schools to Teach Information Literacy
      From President Obama’s Proclamation Declaring Information Literacy Awareness Month
      “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.”
      “The ability to seek, find, and decipher information can be applied to countless life decisions, whether financial, medical, educational, or technical.”
      “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.”
    • Planning For The Future
      The Increasing Need For Schools to Teach Information Literacy
      “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.”
      Standards for 21st-Century Learners
      WASC has only recently added an “Information Literacy” component to its evaluation of colleges seeking WASC accreditation.
      The Educational Testing Service (ETS) has just recently released iSkills, its first-of-a-kind student assessment that tests Information Literacy competencies.
      California recently launched its Digital Literacy Initiative, designed to improve the Information Literacy skills of all Californians.
      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.
    • Planning For The Future
      Facilities: The Library Learning Commons
      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.
      Excerpt from GUHSD Ed Specs for Library Learning Commons Facilities:
      “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…”
      GUHSD Library Council’s Guiding Principles for Future Library Learning Commons Facilities
       
      • Student learner as primary focus of all decisions
      • Flexibility that allows space to be configured in multiple ways (movable furniture, partitions, shelves, equipment, etc.)
      • State-of-the-art technologies
      • Space designed to accommodate future technologies
      • Supervision and safety are top priorities
      • Welcoming and comfortable
      • Abundant natural and artificial lighting
      • Environmentally responsible
      • Designed and built as part of a holistic, campus-wide vision
      • Teacher-Librarians as active participantsin all aspects of the design process
      • Design that factors in ergonomics, multiple learning styles, and the needs of students and staff with disabilities
