Abstract

As new technologies emerge, the primary mission of the school and academic library and library information specialist (LIS) has evolved from a somewhat rigid supporting role for classroom instruction to a more flexible and accessible advisory capacity for research-driven, product- and project-based teaching and learning. The new mission is based on the ability to meet the needs of public and private primary and secondary schools - as well institutions of higher education - in the areas of information science and research, and, particularly, the use of modern information and communication technologies (ICT) to locate and validate information, in addition to assisting students in finding books or other resources.
