The creation, implementation and regular updating of a library policy and development plan allows a school to maximise the impact of its library and learning resource provision, and is an essential task for anyone concerned to develop the library as a whole-school resource and focus for learning. This Guideline gives you all the advice you need to do both jobs. It takes you carefully through the steps needed to produce a realistic and comprehensive policy and gives you the route to produce a credible and meaningful development plan. Six appendices give sample case studies, library policies and development plans from three primary schools and three secondary schools.
