Reading Lists
How outcome was developed (source of information) A disconnect exists between the collections of LAPL branches who serve schools in their area and the needs of those schools as expressed in their teachers’ reading lists.
Desired outcome type Behavior
Desired outcome Teachers are encouraged and enabled to establish realistic reading lists able to be supported by their local LAPL branches. Librarians are given direct access to the reading lists of local schools in order to include requested materials in their collections.
Program Description A module would be added to the LAPL public website for teachers to log in and be able to construct their reading lists. Instantaneous feedback would be provided through the site to the teacher regarding the availability of a book, as well as suggestions for similar books that are in print. Librarians would also be able to easily generate a list of requested materials for the schools their branch services.
Effect on program planning LAPL will need to publicize this new service and provide training to both teachers and librarians on its use.
