What is the difference between a Library and a Library Media Center?
Although they are often thought of as synonymous, the traditional library has evolved into a library media center. As technology progressed, your school library has transitioned from a book storage facility to an electronic data exchange complete with Internet, digital libraries and other information technology and resources.
As a result of the changing nature of the school library itself, the role of the traditional school librarian has also developed. In turn, your school librarian has greatly expanded his/her skills and knowledge to become a library media specialist, a certified educator who assists faculty with curriculum development and is often on the front line of teaching students in our schools. However, they are still here to help students and faculty track information and find useful resources through a variety of channels.
