I agree that we do need to be at least trying to do 'most of it all' where possible. The role of the school librarian is multi faceted and the more we can show others that we can do the better this will be for the profession. I've found difficulties in the past stemming from school leadership's understanding of the role and the constraints they put on librarians - unwilling to change their blinkered 'reading for pleasure only' viewpoints. I think another problem is sometimes with teachers being unaware of the difference between the results garnered from good research sessions and the copying and pasting that is all too prevalent in our schools.
