Abstract

The impetus for this study came from numerous conversations regarding the frustrations colleagues had when communicating with their technology coordinators and/or technology services. In many ways, technology and technology-integration within school media centers are just as important these days as traditional curriculum and teachings. Embracing this fact is essential to a successful school library media program, especially those programs whose main goal is to produce the next generation of information-literate, lifelong learners. By analyzing the results and open-ended responses of a survey presented to New Jersey high school library media specialists, guidelines were proposed on how to establish and maintain a better working relationship between the school library media specialist and the technology coordinator.
