MEDIA REVIEWS
"Information Literacy and the School Media Center is a valuable reference work for media specialists to use in their work to promote and enhance information literacy skills in their schools." - Reference & User Services Quarterly
"Taylor's guidebook fulfills a need and adds a touch of inspiration as well. For newcomers, it offers a much-needed perspective; for veterans, it's a reminder of what school libraries are all about. Starting with the big picture and progressively narrowing the vision through discussions on levels of extant information-literacy standards as they integrate with national, state, and local standards, the author takes readers directly into the planning and implementation processes. She discusses the individual process played out at a site, moving into scheduling, collaboration, and mapping, and down to the specifics of the research process as students experience it. Various research models are compared and contrasted....An extensive bibliography and thorough index round out this back-to-reality check and guide for all levels of teacher librarians." - School Library Journal
"Nobody is better equipped to guide students to information literacy competence than the library media specialist, and Taylor's book is a thorough and well-researched guide to how they can accomplish this task....Two things make this book exceptional. First the chapter on collaboration is a refreshingly frank discussion of the value of working with classroom teachers that delineates the roles of the teacher and the library media specialist, while being realistic in realizing that barriers do exist to real collaboration. Second the extensive bibliography is filled with books, journal articles, and Web resources that will guide readers to the best practices in information literacy at the current time." - VOYA
