Sue Subel’s session, “They Just Don’t Understand Me!”
Description:Feeling like no one understands you? Feel like no one knows or understands what it is you do in the library? Then TELL them! How this school librarian offered to present at the board of education meeting and later had the school board president request a one-to-one session on how to use databases! Presenter will share full presentation and resources used.
Sue hopes that attendees will be able to: …participants will be able to come up with an idea of how they can inform and show their constituents (parents, board of education, community, administration, etc.) what the role is of the school library in learning.
