Quotes

“The Eaglecrest High School library program is exemplary” said Sabrina Carnesi, NSLPY chair. "The committee was blown away by how the entire building is in agreement on the research process. Collaboration consistently occurs. Teachers work with the librarians on locating resources and the school librarians pull a variety of books at different reading levels and interests to meet a variety of learners. Both school librarians and teachers instruct students on the use of tech tools. This approach has resulted in double the amount of checked out books and students who are engaged and motivated to learn.”"
...Boyd, who works at 560-student Wendell Phillips Academy High School in the Chicago South Side neighborhood of Bronzeville. "I have finally been able to identify materials I can present to my students. I can meet my students where they're at, and they've progressed up to reading other materials."
According to the American Library Association, Teen Tech Week raises awareness "about how your library creates a space to extend teens’ learning beyond the classroom where they can explore, create and share content."
Gonzales's paper, titled "Linking Libraries to the Web: Linked Data and the Future of the Bibliographic Record" describes the potential use of linked data to make library catalogs and online resources interoperable with other data across the Web
