"...school libraries are transforming to stay relevant in this global information economy and support the growing and changing needs of the learners. In addition to traditional roles of information literacy and providing the best resources to support curriculum, teacher-librarians support digital literacy and innovative learning practices – inquiry-based, project-based – for students and teachers. They actively connect learning to technology and resources, and facilitate knowledge creation for the school community. They are on a continuing quest to find new ways of supporting students in their learning. The role is multi-faceted, challenging, ever-evolving, and ultimately highly rewarding because the impact can be so significant."
