It It is hard to look around at all we’ve created, built, and collected in our media centers and think, "This needs to be updated" but let's face it; they all do. Curation of all things media includes both letting go and updating. Let's talk about weeding, updating layout and furniture, providing access to technology and literature, enhancing programming, and channeling student creativity in our spaces. The driving force behind all that we do needs to be supporting collaboration, reflecting the 21st Century Model, and the goals of being a Future Ready Librarian. I can share my experiences updating two media centers in the last three years, with very different budgets and resources. I will also share how I learned about 21st century collaboration spaces, my weeding process, and getting support from your teachers and administration. I will share data about how the space is used now compared to before the 21st century renovation efforts. Link to Google Presentation including notes (which explains the slides and pictures)
