Welcome to the CGCS Library Media Supervisors' Network Wiki

This group is made up of individuals responsible for library and information services in school districts that are members of the Council of Great City Schools.The inaugural meeting of the supervisor's network was held February 16-18, 2007, at the University of Maryland College Park. The objectives of that first meeting included:

  • Getting to know others in similar or related leadership positions in large urban school districts
  • Sharing information about successes and challenges in providing quality library media services for young people in urban areas
  • Identifying strategies to address challenges, and
  • Developing a plan for ongoing work among members of the network

This site is a tool for the supervisor's network-- a space for conversation, connections, and community.
