Student thesis: Master's Thesis


The Library School (BE) is part of the school and can even be considered the core of the teaching-learning process. For this statement becomes effective we need a cooperative and collaborative work among teachers and teacher librarians. It is hoped that the Library School is recognized as an educational information center that seeks to empower its users and learners to appropriate principles and practices for the search, use and evaluation of information in an appropriate manner. It is therefore necessary to comply with BE and gather all the principles, guidelines and requirements proposed by the IFLA / UNESCO. This research project seeks to determine whether the investment in school libraries implemented, enabling its transformation or not privileged pedagogical spaces for the integration of curriculum, meeting the guidelines issued by international institutions mentioned above. To this end, we chose the case study method. Three surveys were applied for the coordinators of libraries, school directors / coordinators and Grouping Department to collect information on the status of compliance with the principles of the IFLA / UNESCO. The results obtained in empirical studies focused on school libraries in the municipality of Braga, for information specific to reality, using for this purpose a methodology of quantitative nature. These became apparent that some libraries have yet fully meet the principles stated by IFLA/UNESCO
