Why Collaborate? You see, I don't believe that libraries should be drab places where people sit in silence, and that's been the main reason for our policy of employing wild animals as librarians. — Monty Python skit
Roadblocks to Collaboration • Time • Administrators • Teachers • Not Everything Is on the Internet • The Needle (Your Search) in the Haystack (the Web) • Quality Control Doesn’t Exist • Aren’t There Library-less Universities Now? • The Internet: A Mile Wide, an Inch (or Less) Deep
Misconceptions: We are here for more than just answering questions • Why is abbreviated such a long word? • Is there another word for synonym? • Why isn't phonetic spelled the way it sounds? • Why does monosyllabic have five syllables? • If it's zero degrees outside today and it's supposed to be twice as cold tomorrow, how cold is it going to be?
Levels of Collaboration (brief) • No Involvement • Initial • Moderate • In-Depth Turner, P. & Riedling, A. (2003). Helping Teachers Teach: A school library media specialist’s role. Westport, CT: Greenwood.
Levels of Collaboration (expanded) • No Involvement • Self-Help Warehouse • Individual Reference Assistance • Spontaneous Interaction and Gathering • Cursory Planning • Planned Gathering • Evangelistic Outreach • Scheduled Planning in the Support Role • Instructional Design, Level I • Instructional Design, Level II • Curriculum Development http://dese.mo.gov/divimprove/curriculum/library/handbook/lmstaxonomy.htm
Types of Collaboration • Providing an information rich library • Spontaneous informal assistance • Planned interaction • Full program curriculum support
Who to Seek Out? • The Innovator Ready and eager to work with you and try new things without any evidence that it will be effective • The Middle Adopter Will try an idea after seeing others try it first • The Late Adopter Will not try anything different unless forced to do so against their will, often making the process difficult if not unbearable
Gathering Information • LIS 5712: Integration and Utilization • 12 students, most of whom are or have been teachers, many also with library experience • Read and discussed ideas on collaboration • Created own lesson plans • Sought out practicing school librarians to find out what they are doing
