Full staff listing

Library Services supports school book rooms and textbook rooms on both an ongoing and specifically scheduled basis. Ongoing support is provided through regularly scheduled trainings and centralized management of TIPWeb-IM, the database used district-wide to track and inventory instructional materials.

To help maintain an accurate inventory of instructional materials, Library Services barcodes district-ordered textbooks and distributes them to schools ready for use and circulation.

For questions about ordering instructional materials, contact Rachel Altobelli at rachel.altobelli@aps.edu or (505) 848-8888.

The district has detailed procedures for textbook adoption in the schools:

Fines and Fees

If you have questions about fines and fees for lost or damaged textbooks, read the district's procedural directive for fees, fines, and charges:

Student Fees, Fines, and Charges

Bookroom and Textbook Room Help

Library Services also supports textbook and bookroom clerks through training sessions and one-on-one sit visits. Textbook and bookroom materials are managed through TIPWeb-IM and district-purchased instructional materials are barcoded centrally by Library Services to help schools with the inventory process.

Barcoding

If your bookroom or textbook room needs additional help with barcoding an un-barcoded collection, training new personnel, or other large projects, contact Angela Artiaga by email at gallegos_ang@aps.edu.

Removing Materials

If you have questions about removing outdated (post-adoption) instructional materials from your school, contact Sara Sabol at Library Services by email at sabol@aps.edu for instructions and forms.
