Keith-Jim-Kathy Selection Policy

Mission of school "The mission of the Hall County School System is to create schools that challenge and expect every person to excel intellectually, physically, and socially," (Hall County Schools, 2008, para. 3).

Philosophy/mission The philosophy of the media center is to provide access to information, materials and technology in a variety of formats and contexts to meet the diverse needs of all learners and to provide the necessary support for the school mission and curriculum. The media center program, in collaboration with the staff, parents, and local community will foster the information literacy, reading, and critical thinking skills needed to be productive and responsible citizens and curious, lifelong learners. "The mission of the Hall county school library media program is to ensure that students and staff are effective users of ideas and information," (Early et al., 2003).

Overview of Selection Process The media specialist will keep a consideration file of potential purchases based on requests from students, faculty, staff and parents and collected reviews of materials. Decisions for acquiring materials will be based on the consideration of the media committee, this selection policy, the curriculum, current budget, gift policy, intellectual freedom, and current needs. The media committee will identify targets each year to enhance the collection. Once these targets are identified, the committee will actively seek materials to add to the collection using the selection criteria. While the consideration file will be utilized throughout the year, the targets will be a priority with regard to budget allotment. As items are considered for addition to the collection, the

In the selection of materials, the media specialist and the school media committee should work together. However, final selection rests with the media specialist. (Early et al., 2003)

Library media specialists should maintain a CONSIDERATION FILE for future purchases. This file should reflect school needs, staff recommendations, and reviews.

8


Keith-Jim-Kathy Selection Policy

Technology has greatly enhanced the efficiency of creating consideration files, e.g., Follett's Titlewave (BCPS, n.d.). The media specialist will maintain an electronic copy of the consideration file for quick reference.

Selection Criteria "The collections of the library media program are developed and evaluated collaboratively to support the school's curriculum and to meet the diverse learning needs of students." (ALA/AECT, 1998 p. 83) When selecting materials for the media center, the media specialist and committee will make selections based on the following criteria in addition to reviews. Print and Electronic Resources •

Print and electronic resources will include, but are not limited to, periodicals, books, pamphlets, journals, Internet access, online databases, VHS, DVDs, tapes, CDs, software, audio books and players (i.e. Playaways).

The resource supports the mission, curriculum, and goals of the school (BCPS, n.d.).

It is intended to meet instructional and/or other objectives relating to the school (Bishop, 2007).

The resource is “educationally significant” (ALA, 1998).

“Authority of the author, organization, publisher/producer should be a consideration in selection” (BCPS, n.d., p. 1).

The qualifications of individuals creating resources will be examined and evaluated (Bishop, 2007).

9


Keith-Jim-Kathy Selection Policy

The content of the resource reflects the age, maturity level, and interests of users (Bishop, 2007).

The resource is valid, reliable, and current (Bishop, 2007).

The currency of the resource is appropriate for its intended use (BCPS, n.d.).

The resource will provide balance to the collection by showing a differing point of view from current collection resources (BCPS, n.d.).

It has a distinctive characteristic and depth of material that will add to the scope of the existing collection (Bishop, 2007).

The craftsmanship of the resource will allow it to withstand use (Bishop, 2007).

The resource is cost effective (BCPS, n.d.).

It is a violation of law to copy or duplicate computer programs, audio or video recordings, and printed materials without the express consent of the holder of their copyrights, unless the materials are in the public domain. Any student or staff member who violates the copyright laws shall be subject to discipline and/or prosecution, (JHS Student Agenda, 2008, p. 43). If the student or staff member has a question about the fair use of copyrighted materials they will be directed to a reference of the four factors judges use when considering these disputes, such as the Stanford Copyright and Fair Use Overview (2009). The school will comply with the county internet filtering policy and CIPA and not endanger the district's E-Rate funding. Filtering is also implemented for security, bandwidth concerns, and to support the educational goals and curriculum of the district. Staff and students will be informed of acceptable use policy, copyright policy, and students will receive information about plagiarism. Written guidelines will be available in both student and staff agendas along with contact and reference information in the Media Center when questions arise. It is deemed the duty of the media specialist to conduct a staff meeting and/or a professional learning unit (PLU) on copyright issues during pre-planning. Items to be included: •

What is copyright?

What is fair use for educators?

Demonstrate how litigation is a concern for all.

Gifts and unsolicited materials must meet standards of quality in factual content, artistic and literary value, and presentation.

They must support the adopted curriculum, philosophy, and instructional objectives of the school.

Instructional materials provided by businesses shall not be designed to promote a business or product. Materials shall be donated as a community service rather than as an advertisement.

Gifts and unsolicited materials must be appropriate for the subject area and for the age, emotional development, ability level, learning styles, and social development of students for whom materials are selected. Materials shall be previewed and approved prior to anticipated use to determine instructional relevance and appropriateness.

The individual school reserves the right to reject gifts or unsolicited materials that do not meet the criteria for selection policy.

In no instance shall media and/or equipment be used in such a manner as to violate the Hall County School Board policy or the law. Adherence to fair use
