SCIS | Teacher librarians as cultural change agents /Dianne Oberg (2011)
We have long understood that implementing the school library program is about improving teaching and learning for all members of the school’s community – the facility, the collection, the technology, and the staff are means to that end. The challenge for the teacher librarian is to be an agent and catalyst for change within the whole school as well as within the school library.

Visual Literacy and Information Literacy
The Visual Literacy Standards were developed in the context of the Information Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education, and are intended to complement the Information Literacy Standards.The Visual Literacy Standards address some of the unique issues presented by visual materials. Images often function as information, but they are also aesthetic and creative objects that require additional levels of interpretation and analysis.
Finding visual materials in text‐based environments requires specific types of research skills. The use, sharing, and reproduction of visual materials also raise particular ethical and legal considerations. The Standards address these distinct characteristics of images and visual media and challenge students to develop a combination of abilities related to information literacy, visual communication, interpretation, and technology and digital media use.
ACRL Visual Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education
Approved by the ACRL Board of Directors, October 2011
Library and Information Technology at UFV: School Libraries: Applying Innovative Ideas to a Threatened Species
I suggest that school libraries need to reinvent themselves as something much more sophisticated than what they currently are. They should not be a simple wharehouse of neatly (if you are lucky) catalogued materials to serve children. They should be "idea centres" where students, staff and faculty can put their ideas together for the purpose of innovation. This is NOT about repackaging a library and renaming it a "Learning Commons". This is about changing the PURPOSE of the library. What it is called is not important. It is what it DOES that is important.

PIL’s methodologies have included a survey of over 8,000 students from 25 U.S. college campuses, including Temple (USA); a content analysis of 191 course-related research assignment handouts from 28 campuses; and student discussion groups at 7 campuses.
