Editorial Reviews

?Martin effectively illuminates the principles set forth by the American Association of School Librarians'' seminal publication, Information Power: Building Partnerships for Learning (ALA, 1998), and provides detailed, step-by-step instructions for maximizing a library''s potential. Chapters cover team building, evaluation, creating goals and a plan, identifying and overcoming barriers, staff development, and applying for the National School Library Media Program of the Year Award. The book contains excellent summaries, resource lists, and appendixes with forms.?-School Library Journal Curriculum Connections
