Well, we are wrapping up another school year. I am SOOOOO glad we clicked on Start Inventory on our circulation software. I am also thankful we have an incredibly great assistant who works nonstop. She, from time to time, would go and scan books with the InPath. So, we don't have many books to hunt down. With AP testing and other interruptions (even though we are closed), we would NEVER be able to finish had we not started early.

If anyone was an AP and/or HSAP testing site and has managed to convince the school to move the testing out of the library, how did you do it?

Yes, we do huge PR. I send out a monthly newsletter (one page, front only, two columns), we send emails about new items in the collection, collaborate, etc. The circulation numbers have increased greatly in the two years we (yes, both of the librarians <I am one, too> have been at SHS for two years) have been there.

The principal is very supportive of our program. We also have a great working relationship with the literacy coach. I have read comments about literacy coaches on LMNet. Sounds like it is more of a problem in the elementary schools especially with the "reading rooms" or "book rooms" or whatever they are calling the area the literacy coach is in charge of. We just have the coach, and he does not have his own separate collection.

THAT is a great idea. We had teachers sending students anyway (even though it was advertised we were closed). I know we could find a few people to support us in getting AP and HSAP moved.

A teacher actually complained to the registrar and the principal about library closure during APs. This year the library was only closed twice (half a day).
