School libraries, present and future. There is so much talk about the millennium at the moment that I thought I would share with you my vision of school libraries in the year 2000. Today I believe most of us consider our core task to be the promotion of literacy and study skills, primarily through using books and paper‐based resources. CD‐ROMs and online services are regarded as secondary and expensive peripherals. Our IT skills are generally ‘adequate’, our knowledge of books and authors ‘excellent’. Many librarians work single handed, often in isolation from the teaching staff, frequently struggling to introduce new technology despite inadequate finances and often institutional indifference.
