This article considers strategic approaches for integrating the school library into the taught curriculum. It does this by making a case for such integration at school and then provides a typology of six approaches that were identified in a literature review. The article then provides the findings in this regard from a case study of one peri-urban high school south of Durban, KwaZulu-Natal. Although it is found that the school library is only minimally integrated into the teaching and learning of the curriculum at this school, the authors conclude that these are important scaffolds for further development of school library utilisation at the institution.
