A splendour of letters: Communication across the generations

Research output: Other contribution to conferencePresentation only


The image of the uncertain voyage of the written word through the seas of time and imagination captures an extraordinary story that should empower the creative culture and scholarship of learning that underpins school libraries today. A great library cannot be constructed – it is the growth of ages and a place of inspiration for generations to come. Today teacher librarians are leading literacy, discovery and technology to empower culture and learning, yet it is the splendour of letters, that vast and storied landscape of communication across the generations, which can truly help school libraries achieve their current and future aims The challenge before us is both humbling and exhilarating and deserves every scrap of our attention as we help shape individual lives of children and youth today.
