IASL School Library Technology Innovation Award -2007

2007 The Scotch College, Australia -- The Scotch College Senior Library homepage provides a portal that links users to valuable information and resources that enhance student learning and supports the curriculum. This portal is not only accessed by the learners within the college but international visitors as well. The site is an example of innovative use in collecting, organising and disseminating value-added information within and beyond the school community. It provides a free flow of information and ideas, and promotes the school library services.

The award was presented at the IASL annual conference, which was held in Taipei, Taiwan in July 2007.

SEATTLE, June 3, 2002- Suzette Boyd, Head of Library and Information Services at Scotch College, Melbourne has been awarded the IASL/SIRS Commendation Award for 2002. The award recognizes "outstanding and innovative projects, plans or programs that could serve as models for replication" by other associations and individuals. A plaque and a cash award of US $500 will be presented at the 31st annual conference of the International Association of School Librarianship (IASL) in Petaling Jaya, Malaysia in August.

In making the award, President Peter Genco noted that the week-long Literature Festival, organised by Suzette Boyd included a social dimension that brought families, students and school together around reading. The project involved the whole school community and comprised 110 sessions. Activities involving the school community included a midweek "Books, blokes and brekky" for fathers and sons, a literary dinner, reading challenges for staff and students, and an evening forum on "Best Books for Boys". The school library website provided entertaining profiles of authors who led workshops and gave talks during the festival. Other schools have already been inspired to run a similar program based on this model.

The International Association of School Librarianship comprises personal and association members from over 80 countries committed to enabling young people to develop literary and cultural appreciation and to use information effectively through the improvement of school libraries and school library programs as a vital component of education.
