Series: SLA Guidelines · Level: Secondary

Since the spring of 2003 and for the next dozen or so years, secondary schools will be transformed as our national vision for education for the early 21st century is translated into innovative, exciting and flexible learning spaces and practices. As part of this fundamental rethink about schools, their design and buildings, and the way education, its management and learning may be delivered now and in coming decades, the library needs to take centre stage in the school's thinking. It must be integral to the earliest stage of planning and design.
We hope that this updated Guideline will provide inspiration and information to school librarians, indeed everyone in and beyond school, who is considering or directly involved with a new build or refurbished library development programme.
