Commonwealth government agency libraries review: literature review

Ongoing financial, administrative, and technological changes present significant challenges and opportunities for government libraries in delivering services to their clients. Determining how government library and information services might best confront these challenges and take advantage of new opportunities is crucial for the future of the sector. The Australian Government Libraries Information Network (AGLIN) has commissioned a review of service delivery models in Commonwealth Government libraries. The goals of the Commonwealth Government Agency Libraries Review (CGALR) are to evaluate the libraries’ current service delivery models and to develop an options paper outlining some future models which might better serve needs of clients across government.
 
This literature review considers a range of current perspectives on library and information services,focusing on the specific issues and challenges facing contemporary government libraries and librarians. The review incorporates four key areas:

  • Directions in government administration
  • National and international trends in government library services
  • Developments in contemporary special libraries
  • Skills and competencies required by special librarians

VIT standards and teacher librarian practice

This document has been developed to assist principals, teacher librarians and school communities and has the following applications:

  • It can be used as a guide when provisionally registered teacher librarians are applying for registration. Qualified librarians who complete a teaching qualification and are seeking registration as a teacher would find this document particularly useful
  • It would be of value to principals who are focussing on the role of the teacher librarian within the school
  • It provides details about teacher librarian practice for those school communities that use the VIT Standards as the framework for their Annual Review Meeting (ARM)
  • It can be used in conjunction with School Improvement Framework in Libraries (SIFiL). The indicators could assist library staff to contribute to the school’s Self-reflection Report. In addition, the document could be used in the ongoing monitoring of the School Improvement Plan (SIP) and the Annual Action Plan (AAP)
  • It provides exemplars of practice for teacher librarians
