                                              During this time of rapid modernization of technology and educational reform, this book
                                              is a must-read for school librarians tasked with ensuring their libraries meet evolving
                                              standards. This title provides the research and organizational techniques and skills they
                                              need to gain seats at the table of the three power committees: technology, curricula, and
                                              strategic planning.
                                              School librarians need to collect and publicize national and local school-based evidence
                                              that shows the positive correlations between school librarians and student achievement.
