Dear all,

I would like to give my contribution about the interesting issues
raised about new SLs project in Denmark and, more specifically, the
cooperation between SLs and PLs.

In Italy the debat on the SL/PL cooperation is always open. We have
to consider that the situation here varies a lot from region to
region and within the same region/province/town, according to the
level and quality of (both public and school) library services ,
provision, funding etc. More in general, I find many school libraries
still rely on the public library. This happens because of many
factors: their library/librarian-information specialist(s) (if there
is any) aren't aware of their educational role, or don't have the
needed expertise etc., so that they simply "buy" services, training,
cultural and reading promotion activities from the public library. On
the other hand, some public libraries/librarians are afraid of losing
patrons [mainly, the kids] and perceive the school library as an
opponent or, simply, don't trust the SL as a relevant partner while,
as Helen has rightly pointed out, he/she has the pedagogical skills
to educate and train pupils - and teachers - in the field of
information literacy.

Furthermore, some factors (e.g., lack of recognition  of the SL/IS
position in the school and the severe financial cuts both in
education and culture) of course affect in a negative way the whole situation.

In the field of SL/PL collaboration, the City Council of Rome has
recently promoted the establishment of "bibliopoints" in schools, as
a branch of the public library: the school library services are
mainly devoted to their specific patrons (pupils and teachers), but
some initiatives - e.g., in the field of reading promotion, author's
meetings etc. - are promoted and funded by the public library in the
same borough where the school is located. Most of the selected
schools are the "BiblioScuole" Project partners and meet some of the
international criteria and standards (e.g., devoted space and
equipment, collection, staff, ICT, opening hours etc.).

I heartfeltly wish all of you a merry Christmas and a 2010 full of
joy, peace and personal satisfaction!

Warmest wishes.
Luisa
