The article reflects on the role of media specialists and presents some suggestion to them. It suggests that media specialists are required to show leadership ability by managing their day-to-day work situation in terms of achieving their goals for the school library. They need to write down their objectives and plans so that they move in a right direction in order to achieve the desired goal. It is necessary for them to communicate the goals and objectives to others such as teachers, students, parents, the school improvement team, and other media specialists so that the full power of these goals and objectives can be realized.
