A Music Librarian s Guide to Creating Videos and Podcasts Book Excerpt:

A Music Librarian’s Guide to Creating Videos and Podcasts is a guide every music librarian will want to use to develop and enhance multi-media skills. The digital age has created a divide between music librarians and their patrons: traditional models of interaction have been superseded or replaced by electronic communication, and virtually all librarians have felt the ensuing decline of their users’ information-seeking skills. Music librarians can now be proactive in reaching out to patrons digitally with videos and podcasts, since editing technologies for both platforms have become inexpensive and easy to use. In A Music Librarian’s Guide to Creating Videos and Podcasts Katie Buehner and Andrew Justice give music librarians the step-by-step instructions for creating their own content in both Mac and PC platforms. This ready reference on videos should find home in every library and also many personal collections.

The Collection Program in Schools Concepts and Practices 6th Edition Book Excerpt:

Our digitally rich world changes quickly and contains more information resources than ever before; as a result, school librarians are tasked with the enormous challenge of curating a diverse, high-quality, and up-to-date collection for teachers, students, and administrators to use. This new edition of The Collection Program in Schools gives school librarians the tools to develop and maintain a collection in a constantly changing environment, often with reduced budgets; and to ensure that students can use virtual libraries and have access to all modern media and learning resources. The book logically progresses in its coverage of national and state policy concerns to community needs to the process of collection building and maintenance. Topics covered include key education trends affecting collections, such as digital textbooks and other non-print resources, instructional improvement systems, STEM priorities, and open education resources; the use of school libraries as makerspaces; media type considerations for a range of users; Common Core State Standards and Next Generation Science Standards; and the principles of curation: acquisition, description, organization, promotion, evaluation, and maintenance. This guide is ideal for use in many graduate-level school librarian preparation courses, including classes on school library collection development and school library management.
