The role of the school librarian is varied, extending far beyond resource management and collection curation to include collaboration and partnerships with internal and external stakeholders for both curriculum support and leisure time. Whether working individually, as part of a library team, or as part of a broader team within the school, local or global community, building and maintaining relationships has become an essential skill. The Networked Librarian is an invaluable guide to working effectively with the whole school and beyond. Bringing together the author's extensive experience in school libraries and education, it provides a means for school librarians to engage with their communities to create real impact.

The book delves into how team working can enhance motivation, the development of self-esteem, and how to deal with more challenging situations for amicable resolution. Consideration is also given to how networking can be used to promote library resources and services for impact, whether that is within school or in the local or global community. Overall, this book demonstrates the importance of creating networks to underpin practical applications of forming connections, collaborating with colleagues and co-creating and developing ideas to enhance the school library services.
