Managing your library

The student or students you nominate to serve as librarians will likely devise their own creative ideas for how to best manage the class library. The class can be involved in rewarding them for their efforts.

In the meantime, here are some excellent models developed by Prof. Ortenzi's class at the Liceo Primo Levi in Rome.

Here's a template developed by Lorenzo Piro at the Liceo Gullace in Rome, under the expert guidance of Prof. Maria Grazia Maglione. The first "foglio" (or sheet) provides detailed instructions for using the spreadsheet, followed by a sheet that automatically calculates General Statistics for the class based on the subsequent sheets for each student. Great work!
