Abstract

Igniting a passion for reading and research is core business for school libraries, inevitably placing the library at the centre of the twenty-first century reading and learning experience. Teacher librarians, librarians and library teams in Australian and New Zealand schools are responding to the learning needs within the school community with a focus on curriculum integration empowered by digital environments. School libraries are challenged to build learning opportunities and lifelong learning through integrated and innovative approaches to information literacy, critical thinking and creativity. The importance of school libraries in connecting students with local and global concerns as part of the curriculum is expected in both countries, placing significant emphasis on digital media, information management and responsive school library collections.
