"Building strong collaborations among schools, public libaries, university programs, and other organizations within our communities is paramount to our combined futures and our collective goals of literacy, universal education, and community empowerment"
Ritzo, Nam & Bruce, 2009.
"If collaboration does not take place, we hold students at ransom and limit them on their information quests because of institutional hurdles"
Ross Todd, 2009.
This guide to school and academic library collaborations is a LIVING guide.

This is just a start. A first step.
Please provide comments, feedback, guidance. Join the dialogue. Become a collaborator.
Together we are stronger and we will make a difference for OUR children.
