"A learning commons is a whole school approach to building a participatory learning community. The library learning commons is the physical and virtual collaborative learning hub of the school. It is designed to engineer and drive future-oriented
learning and teaching throughout the entire school." - Leading Learning

"The standards focus on key concepts to be implemented to drive best teaching and learning through the Library Learning Commons. The growth indicators provide a snapshot for the implementation of each standard." - Leading Learning

Things to Keep In Mind

Be aware of school goals such as advancing literacy, both traditional and digital, and provide support for achieving these goals.

Ask to attend staff meetings and participate actively.

Stay one step ahead of staff and students in the areas of technology so that you can offer professional development in information technology, digital citizenship and information literacy. This is highly appreciated by teachers and students.

These principals say that the library is the heart of the school. Look at your library program and think of ways that your library can truly be called the heart of the school.
