An effective teacher librarian has respect for all students and their rights as learners and readers. She promotes equity of access for students to reading materials, learning resources and technology within the confines of the schools resources. She supports school staff with quality resources (that are weeded regularly), training in technology and curriculum knowledge. She knows the power of metadata and uses it to enhance and enrich the discovery layer of the catalogue and increase retrievability, serendipity and accessibility. An effective teacher librarian is an essential player in a school who supports students, staff, management and the wider community in all teaching and learning activities.
