Summary "This book illuminates school librarian and teacher librarian education and training in light of the 2015 IFLA School Library Guidelines, second edition.

The book focuses on moving professional practice forward, translating the Guidelines into actions ensuring effective education and training and improved practice. The book highlights issues and concerns related to school librarian and teacher librarian education and training. What attitudes, skills and knowledge are required to inspire students and support teaching and learning effectively? What curriculum content is required?
