Jamie Campbell Naidoo

Abstract


Spotlighting school librarians from across the globe, Effective School Librarianship: Successful Professional Practices from Librarians around the World, the two-volume set collected and edited by Patrick Lo, Heather Rogers, and Dickson K.W. Chiu, introduces readers to a wide range of librarians working in rural and urban schools. The various experiences of these diverse librarians are captured through a question and answer format which highlights the challenges and opportunities they encounter. Read collectively, these interviews showcase commonalities among the profiled librarians nationally and internationally, serving as windows into the experiences of other librarians and as mirrors of shared professional values. At the same time, these conversations provide a treasure trove of inspiring narratives sure to spark rich discussions about global issues facing contemporary school librarians.
