Is your school library as effective as it should be?

Rosemary has worked both in school libraries and as a consultant to them, assessing their collections, recommending purchasing lists for well-rounded collections, creating final purchasing lists in conjunction with the school librarian, and streamlining the purchasing process. She also recommends annual collection updates based on her ongoing knowledge of new publications to ensure the most effective use of your purchasing budget.delete.​

 

Services include:


Collection assessment
Is it time to take stock of the collective titles and genres in your school library? Often these can get out of balance over time. Rosemary has worked with many schools to assess their collections.

 

Gap identification
Assessment often identifies areas that are overweight or underweight. This can apply to both fiction and non-fiction sections. Sometimes a specific school requires more emphasis on specific subject matter that is relevant to that school’s location, socio-economic grouping or special nature.

 

Collection recommendations

With her knowledge of your current collection and what a desirable collection should look like, Rosemary can provide a comprehensive and strategic recommendation list to provide a well balanced collection that is customised to your school’s specific constituency.

 

Ongoing collection monitoring
Once the collection is optimised, Rosemary can provide an annual monitoring and updating service based on her ongoing knowledge of recent trends, titles, emerging authors, international publisher plans etc.

 

Purchasing assistance
Rosemary is well-experienced in purchasing in the most cost-effective and efficient way and knows just where to go to find the right books for your collection.
