Transitions to Digital Media - New roles for libraries

The school librarian is "a digital age lynchpin"

From "District Adminstration" magazine:

"Enlightened administrators realize that school librarians still play a pivotal role for students, guiding them through search processes and helping them find appropriate, reliable, vetted resources in print and digital format for research and other classroom projects."

Marcie Post, executive director of the International Reading Association (IRA), adds that the school librarian is "a digital age lynchpin," more important than ever to maintaining the integrity of information so integral to teaching and learning. Searching, researching, and accessing critical perspectives in all subject areas, as well as coaching and guiding students, is increasingly necessary, she adds.
