Subject Headings

Popular posts are transcribed below: Subject Heading➨Subject Heading is defined as the most specific word or group of words that captures the essence of the subject or one of the subjects of a book or other library material (e.g. serial, sound recording, moving image, cartographic material, manuscript, computer file, e-resource etc.) which is selected from a subject heading list containing the preferred subject access terms (controlled vocabulary) and assigned as an added entry in the bibliographic record which works as an access point and enables the work to be searched and retrieved by subject from the library catalog database.

Subject headings are also used in a bibliography and index. English literature—20th century—History and criticism. Construction industry—United States. URI. Library Courses & Resources – WASLA.

Pledger Consulting, 2011. This brilliant resource is a must for every school library. 1- The Role of Teacher Librarian. This video encapsulates my feelings about the role.

1- The Role of Teacher Librarian

Retrieved from Retrieved from “A tightrope walker juggling at least 6 balls, who at any moment could be thrown 2 or 3 chainsaws” (Kay, 2014). That was my view of the role of teacher librarian in one of my initial blog posts at the beginning of my learning journey. Having worked as a teacher librarian for over 2 years when starting this course of study, it clearly demonstrated my feeling of being pulled in many directions at once, coupled with not knowing what to expect, particularly from school leadership and colleagues with a stereotypical view of the role.

When I first thought about the continual evolution of this multi-faceted role (Herring, 2007) it was in terms of practicalities – how to manage the daily tasks of running an efficient service, how to ensure currency in my own professional knowledge, how to advocate for the programme with school managers.

Inquiry learning. Teacher-librarian. Some three months ago, I completed an activity where I quickly noted some thoughts on the roles of teacher, librarian and teacher librarian (TL).


Reflecting on those initial notes indicates just how much I have learned. From early perceptions of TLs as purely administrators, (usually) lovers of literature and resource assistants to teachers, who figuratively (and sometimes literally) sit in an isolated position in a school, my newfound knowledge and understanding of the role tells me this is not necessarily the case. All librarians do is check out books, right? (Purcell, 2010) Wrong! My pre-learning view of the TL- who they are and what they do in a school was almost as simplistic as this question. ETL 507 Reflective Portfolio » A TEACHER LIBRARIANS ROLE. The role of a teacher librarian consists of supporting and implementing the schools vision by promoting and developing valuable information and library services, whilst designing programs that play a role in developing student success with learning (Australian Library and Information Association, 2004).

ETL 507 Reflective Portfolio » A TEACHER LIBRARIANS ROLE

Reflecting on literature, the Australian School Library Association (ASLA) and the Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA) have mutually devised Standards of professional excellence for teacher librarians. These standards clearly define the role of a teacher librarian, as someone who displays skills, knowledge and commitment to learning. I now understand that Teacher librarians are uniquely qualified as they draw on dual qualifications in education and information sciences that allows them to respond to various learning needs, whilst assisting others by passing on their knowledge and expertise.

Neil Gaiman: Why our future depends on libraries, reading and daydreaming

A declaration of members’ interests, of a sort. So, I am going to be talking to you about reading. I’m going to tell you that libraries are important. I’m going to suggest that reading fiction, that reading for pleasure, is one of the most important things one can do. I’m going to make an impassioned plea for people to understand what libraries and librarians are, and to preserve both of these things. And I am biased, obviously and enormously: I’m an author, often an author of fiction. So I’m biased as a writer. And I’m here giving this talk tonight, under the auspices of the Reading Agency: a charity whose mission is to give everyone an equal chance in life by helping people become confident and enthusiastic readers. And it’s that change, and that act of reading that I’m here to talk about tonight. It’s not one to one: you can’t say that a literate society has no criminality.
