Blow your own Trumpet: Assertiveness and Advocacy for Librarians

Course Details:

This course should help you to make your voice heard within your school, assert yourself and give your Library a higher profile. Practical ideas for both advocacy and assertiveness will be included which have been tried and tested by a former School Librarian of the Year.

Trainer: Anne-Marie Tarter

Originally from California, Anne-Marie has a BA from Stanford University and a MLS in Information Science from San José State University. She moved to Yorkshire 28 years ago and undertook a further year of post-graduate study focusing on librarianship in the British school context at Leeds Metropolitan University and in 1990 became a chartered member of CILIP. Anne-Marie has just left Ripon Grammar School having worked there for 18 years. She served as the secretary of the national committee of the Schools Library Group of CILIP from 2000 to 2005 and was on the working parties that helped to write the last two editions of the CILIP Guidelines for Secondary School Libraries. In Spring 2006, she was awarded the School Library Association’s School Librarian of the Year.
