The Library Learning Commons: Meeting the Needs of the 21st Century Learner
MetadataShow full item record
School library philosophy was rewritten to meet the informational needs of the 21st century learner. Many school libraries have yet to make the changes needed to meet the new requirements. The library learning commons model mirrors the new philosophy. The review of the literature describes the learning commons model and gives strategies for implementation. Additional research was conducted via an Internet survey completed by school librarians. Data analysis concluded that school libraries are implementing elements of the learning commons model, but few have completed the transition. Many schools need to add additional resources and strategies in order to more closely reflect the American Association of School Librarians ideals.
