Abstract

Being a School Librarian in France: How to Take Advantage of Peer Networking for Professional Development

French teacher-librarians are library professionals, both managers of the school library and teachers for students. They need to keep informed about evolving library skills in order to respond to the needs of teachers and students. Indeed, their mission statements require them to broaden their library skills through professional development. This paper describes the personal strategies of the author as a young professional, advancing professional skills through peer networking. Three paths will be described: district meetings, professional days, and social media.
