Question from the Field: How do I combine media centers?

Wait, where am I again?Question from the Field is a service CMLE offers to busy professionals who want to gather wisdom from colleagues in Central MN library or school media center settings. CMLE staff pose the question in a blog post, then collects answers using a Google form. After a designated time period, the responses are shared in a subsequent blog post. 

An area media specialist asked: We are looking at combining our Middle School and High School Media Centers, grades 6-12.  Are there other schools in the area who have done this? Your answers to four short questions will help this media specialist plan and/or better communicate with administrators about this proposed change. Thanks in advance for sharing tips, tricks, and best practices to further enhance school libraries. Your input is valued!

January 21 is the deadline for responses!
