Developing, promoting and maintaining digital resources is an exciting challenge for the busy, multi-tasking Primary Library Co-ordinator (PLC). Learning to master these resources is important in primary school libraries for its essential life skills impact; as well as its role in raising the library's profile while promoting reading and effective information handling skills.

This publication guides the reader on how best to utilise these resources in the primary school library to the best curriculum and financial effect – primary school libraries are required to have an ICT presence thanks to the new Curriculum. Some schools may have dispensed with a dedicated ICT suite due to the availability and convenience of mobile technology; this change may promote a role for the library as a central information and research centre for children and adults.

Includes a 'Developing Digital Resources' checklist as an appendix to guide and assist; as well as excellent web links.
