All school librarians are regularly asked to identify and locate information or resources about their local area or local environment. Here is a new guideline to support that essential area of work. The text covers important aspects such as the range of useful materials to include, ways to manage them, other sources of support and strategies to promote the collection. It also includes five very useful and varied case studies that show local studies work at its best and offer ideas to make the best use of your local School Library Service.
