The end of the teacher-librarian

James Herring

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    This article discusses the threats and opportunities posed by technology in schools to the professional role of teacher-librarians. The use of the Internet in schools and homes, the development of school intranets, and the increase in use of instructional Web sites in schools will make teachers and students retreat from the school library and into their classrooms. As a result, teachers will see themselves as being responsible for student information literacy, further undermining the role of the teacher-librarian.
