The goal of the Principal Project, funded by ILILE, was to collect and disseminate resources to help administrators to better understand the role of the certified library media specialist and the importance of a strong library media program. Administrative support is vital to developing and maintaining a quality school library program. These resources offer ideas and suggestions for working closely with your school administrator to ensure that your program has a positive impact on teaching and learning.
Research for this project was coordinated by Ann E. Tepe.
