by Betty J. Morris

Since the 1992 publication of the third edition of Administering the School Library Media Center, schools and school libraries have changed significantly. AASL's publication of Information Power: Building Partnerships for Learning, with its emphasis on the collaborative teaching role of school media specialists, the increasing importance of information literacy, the proliferation of new technologies, and the introduction of the Internet have all had a significant impact on the administration of school library media centers. This new edition encompasses all of these innovations as it covers the basics of administration, facilities management, selection of materials, staffing, budgeting, organization, and the like. There is much that is all new: all chapters have been reviewed and updated and the text has been carefully reviewed to bring it in line with school libraries of the 21st century. It is aligned with the new AASL national guidelines for school library media.

Bought this for a class; helpful in some areas but not in others. Lots of blank forms and examples if you're into checklists, but I don't know that it will be terribly practical for me. I work in a small K-12 district; maybe it would be more useful for larger districts.
Required reading for class.
Excellent Quality
This text contained the information I needed. Well organized and referenced. I recommend it for all Librarians and Library Media Specialists.
This book is thorough, but not a riveting read. However, the number of pages aren't as daunting as you might think, there are a lot of tables and charts.
I found this book to be a good resource for school teacher librarians. I would recommend it.
