Efforts and changes around school libraries in Sweden today – Whats new after Long Beach?


  • Fredrik Ernerot




As the 2017 IASL conference theme in Long Beach, California was “Learning without borders” its interesting, almost one year later, to focus on how the school library, as well as the school librarian, will have to adopt the field – to establish and develop the field as a whole.
By describing the whole field, with a perspective taken from the Swedish school library, from the present situation 2017/2018 and even further than that, there will be a contribution of useful material and methods – inspirational to the work and progress for school libraries/school librarians, both on a national and international level.
This time one specific subject will be presented during the lecture - mainly to create a sustainable knowledge for school libraries - with a special focus on the political and structural efforts and changes taking place in Sweden today.
