School Library Development Framework

School Library Development Framework Diagram.
The School Library Development Framework is a resource for anyone involved with the development of your school library. It can help guide reflections and decisions about how your library is incorporated into teaching and learning in your school.

Effective school libraries

In an effective school library, student learning and well-being are supported by library services that combine elements of:

  • place
  • collections
  • connections, and
  • access.

You also need:

  • effective leadership to ensure your library services align with the school’s vision and goals for student learning and well-being, and
  • expertise to design and deliver those services for your school community.
