Seminar Objectives-Review the elementary library collection
-Assess what books are outdated in the library collection
-Increase awareness of traffic flow into the elementary library
-Practice assessing reports in the library circulation software
Work Summary-Reviewed spine labels and how books were shelved in the elementary library. Noted that books typically coded as "E" for easy books in most libraries were marked with a "P". Participant was unsure what the "P" represented - Primary. Contacted the aide who shared it meant picture books (But some of the books are easy chapter books and not picture books...)
-When using a report to locate outdated books in the collection, had trouble finding them. This is because many of the books had no spine label but are color coded to correspond with an old reading program. Additionally other books are labeled incorrectly. Advised participant that without correct and visible spine labels, re-shelving books will be time consuming. More importantly students wanting to locate a book on a shelf will have difficulty since they will need to read each book title in that section instead of glancing at the spine label.
-Regarding traffic flow, the elementary library is in an old classroom and offers a one stall bathroom. A large copier has been added to the library space. The aide stated that last year teachers would come into the library to use the copier and the bathroom. Mentioned to participant that with such a small space and 30 minutes of instructional time disruptions should be limited
-Participant was able to access cataloging and circulation reports for use in today's training
Assessment of Learning-Participant was attentive and asked questions. Participant understands how to read the reports used today. Participant will begin to weed outdated books from the elementary collection. Participants will post her schedule outside of the elementary library and communicate her schedule with teachers to limit interruptions. Participant demonstrated an understanding of how to download, print, and read specific reports
Evaluation Summary Notes-All went well. Participants understands the value of having correct spine labels and limited disruptions during instructional time
Needed Changes-Participant will need to develop a 2-3 year plan for correcting spine labels on books
Next Steps-Facilitator will be visiting participant in district to assist with the ms/hs collection and offer advice
