ELF2.0: Young Children, New Media & Libraries Bibliography
As part of the Early Learning with Families 2.0 Initiative at the California State Library, I’m working with a fantastic set of partners to create a Young Children, New Media & Libraries Bibliography as part of our Tech Tool Kit (see yesterday’s blog post for more information). Many thanks to Dorothy Stoltz, Jane Flint, Suzanne Flint and Liz Sunderman for undertaking this project with me. I know we’ll all be doing a LOT of reading this summer! As part of this project I’m going to try to post regular updates about what scholarly, research and policy-based works I’ll be reading.
Here’s a wee description:
Young Children, New Media & Libraries Bibliography
The purpose of the Bibliography is to collate a comprehensive resource list of research & policy documents relevant to the issue of young children & new media, with the end goal of creating a literature review containing general guidelines for practice in public libraries. The general guidelines will then be used to guide the conversation of the role of libraries at the National Forum on Young Children, New Media & Libraries (if funded by IMLS) and will be eventually put forward for adoption by the board of the Association for Library Services to Children.
Partners: California State Library Early Learning with Families 2.0 Initiative, Carroll County (Maryland) Public Library, Maryland State Department of Education, Division of Library Development and Services & the University of Maryland, College of Information Studies.
