School Library Association of Victoria Reference Group invites you to contribute
The article, Seven successful strategies to develop your advocacy toolkit, by Karen Bonanno appeared recently in the SCIS Newsletter, Connections
Karen makes a very important point right at the beginning of her article - she points out the difference between lobbying and advocacy:
"Lobbying is active campaigning of the government with the view to asking policymakers to take a specific position on an item of legislation. Advocacy is about working on activities that will influence policy. It is a consistent and persistent effort to shift perceptions through regular positive activity to bring about change." The simple strategies outlined in this article make it easy for all of us to be advocates for well-resourced school libraries.
