May Reference Notes

The new online-only issue of Reference Notes is now available. (Apologies for the delay getting it up on the blog.)

In this issue we share write-ups of great sessions from the 2011 ARLD Day conference; you can use them to learn what projects, programs, and services your colleagues from across the state are working on. We report on a review of studies on the value of media specialists in schools; you can use this to support your school library. And we offer a teaser on a new tool that ties ELM content to K12 academic standards; you can use this as something to think about over the summer.

You can use these articles for all sorts of other things:
