Welcome to a Culture of Collaboration

Welcome to our brand-new blog. We are a team of school librarian educators from four different universities who share a strong belief in the power of collaboration to transform learning and teaching environments.

On this blog we will share research and musings, news and views, and prompt lively conversations regarding collaboration between school librarians, classroom teachers, specialists, school administrators, and others involved in improving 21st-century literacy learning for youth.

Our goal is to involve our university students, members of the school library and broader education community, and the community-at-large in discussions related to creating, building, and sustaining cultures of collaboration to improve student learning outcomes and to positively impact educator effectiveness.

Please do not hesitate to post your thoughts, questions, and experiences. We welcome divergent points of view as springboards to deepen our dialogue and better understand other perspectives as well as to better understand our own.

We will practice netiquette, respectful communication, on this blog and reserve the right to terminate and remove non-productive or inappropriate posts.

We are delighted you have “found” us. We will begin posting in earnest in September. Please stand by.

Looking forward to building a culture of collaboration with you,

Melissa, Judy, Sue, and Judi

One thought on “Welcome to a Culture of Collaboration

  1. Thank you for providing a venue such as this. Our school district librarians will either be “lurkers,” participants, or observers, so do not be surprised if you hear from us from Laredo, Texas!
