Glenn Fitzpatrick's curator insight, October 7, 2015 9:16 AM

This article by Carol Kuhlthau looks at the importance of the partnership between school librarians and teachers in supporting students to learn in an increasingly complex information environment. It discusses what it takes to transform a school into a 21st century learning space and the role the librarian plays in this. Especially valuable for me was the explanation of the collaborative teams needed for successful inquiry and the role of the librarian within these teams.
