What is a teacher-librarian
A teacher-librarian, as defined by the Australian School Library Association (ASLA), is an individual who holds both recognised teaching qualifications and qualifications in librarianship. Teacher-librarians are important to education due to their combined knowledge of teaching, curriculum, library and information management. Information is the foundation of all education, and therefore teacher-librarians play a pivotal role within Queensland schools.
The three major roles of the teacher-librarian are:
- Curriculum leaders
- Information specialists
- Information services managers
