Susan Gilbert, CASL President & Jody Howard, CAL President


8:45 - 10:15  Should Libraries Evolve or Reinvent Themselves?, Dr. David L. Loertscher, Professor, San JoséState University

Think of the challenges: the Detroit automakers, healthcare, the energy crisis, and the economy just to name a few. Evolve or reinvent? Think of the Google Generation and libraries. Do we evolve or reinvent ourselves? In this presentation, a foundation of research is used to develop a new theory of school libraries as an example of what a reinvention might look like. However, can a field actually reinvent itself?

Dr. David Loertscher, author of Beyond Bird Units and The New Learning Commons, received his PhD from IndianaUniversity. He has been a teacher librarian at both the elementary and secondary level. Having taught at several universities, he is currently a professor at the School of Library and Information Science at San JoseStateUniversity. After working as the head of the editorial department of Libraries Unlimited for ten years, he became the President of Hi Willow Research & Publishing. His website Davidvl.org focuses on professional resources for school library media specialists. He also maintains a blog entitled School Libraries: Book Reviews, Research, Issues. He is one of the founders of TreasureMountain, a group of school library researchers who began meeting in 1989 to share research and ideas.

Thanks, Nancy. It was a fine day and Bud The Teacher made it a living record. How cool is that?!

Thank you for setting up this wiki for us and working on speaker selection. Chris Harris was perfect for our 1st Annual CASL/TIE Collaboration!
