Teacher as Mediators in Effective Use of Learning Resources in Schools.

By Achebe, N.e.e.

In this paper, we argue that unless teachers are encouraged to mediate in the school library service
delivery, students will continue to face a future in which their experiences as learners are tightly bounded,
controlled and limited, disregarding the numerous database available in our information repositories such
as the churches, universities, towns, villages, galleries, museums and their libraries. There is a need to open
the eyes of teachers to the potentials of the school library in helping them to teach effectively. It is only
when the teacher's skill is gainfully utilized can the school library materials be effectively used by students.
We consider the problems inherent in this type of mediation, the areas of cooperation, the methods and
materials the teacher may use, the strength and weaknesses of each method in making students to use the
library and the incentive to encourage students make library use a habit. The conclusion is for both the
teacher and the school teacher-librarian to see themselves as partners-in-progress and strive to cooperate
with one another to encourage students to make effective use of materials in the school library
