Role (statement) of a teacher librarian!

The role of a teacher librarian encompasses into its framework six expertise areas:

  1. Teaching and Learning
  2. Leadership
  3. Curriculum Involvement
  4. Management
  5. Literature Promotion
  6. Services

SLSA (school library association of South Australia) advocates a role statement that includes the six above expertise areas within its framework. The following link directs you to their site: http://www.slasa.asn.au/Advocacy/rolestatement.html. A link to a downloadable PDF version of this statement can be found at: http://www.slasa.asn.au/Advocacy/docs/rolestatementslasa.pdf. The SLSA role statement is of course the full level of responsibilities of a Teacher Librarian. This statement can be tailored to suit their current level of responsibilities.  A tailored role statement would still encompass a fair few of the points. The teacher librarian would have to be skilled in allocating the right amount of time managing all the necessary responsibilities depending on the demands of their individual library.
