Bobbi Tu, Library Media Specialist, Churchill Junior High, East Brunswick, N.J.

How can media specialists best demonstrate their value to administrators and the community? Even the most supportive administrators may not have the time, inclination, or proper understanding of the many facets of a media center to fully appreciate what a well-functioning school library media center can bring to the school community. Speakers focus on how to effectively advocate for the school library media center by selecting meaningful metrics and chunking that data into palatable bites using infographics. Best practices, tips and tricks for creating successful infographics for advocacy are shared. The effective use of infographics in the classroom are also presented as a means to address visual literacy in a digital world.
