Future Focused School Library Replay
Content presented by Leonie McIlvenny, Head of iCentre


In a climate where school libraries and professional library staff are being threatened as schools rationalise resources and programs, there is an urgency to review current library programmes and practices to ensure that the school library is ‘future ready’. There are a number of international initiatives, such as Future Ready Librarians from the US and Leading Learning from Canada that provide some key standards of practice that reflect the current climate and move beyond those described in Australian legacy standards framework Learning for the Future.


This webinar will explore these initiatives and frameworks, make links with Learning for the Future and provide suggestions on ways that schools can use these documents to support them to become ‘future-focused’.


By the end of this webinar attendees will be able to:

  • Identify and access current initiatives and frameworks that describe future focused libraries (national and international)
  • Make links between Learning for the Future and other international frameworks
  • Identify key standards by which their school library can be reviewed for strategic planning purposes
