Another topic of great interest to the American study tour participants is one that has no true equivalent in Germany, and that is education for school media librarians. Some states in the U.S. even issue state certification for school media librarians, something no German institution offers. As German schools and the German educational system continue to suffer under the PISA findings, it should be considered whether an initiative in Germany would be worthwhile. Nancy Everhart is president-elect of the American Association of School Librarians and as such would be very interested in such an initiative. Perhaps the agreement signed between the Library Associations of Germany and the United States in support of increasing professional exchange in this field would be a good starting point…
