School libraries shelve book-boosting plans as more student research goes online

School libraries shelve book-boosting plans as more student research goes online | Building a Learning Commons | Scoop.it

Angela Wilkins's insight:

"It's not just books anymore,"

"Our kids can walk the world. They can literally walk the world because they have all these opportunities at their fingertips -- in their pockets, really. It's just about giving them that access."
