Higgs-Horwell, Melissa; Schwelik, Jennifer
Library Media Connection, v26 n3 p36-38 Nov-Dec 2007
As librarians work to prepare themselves and their colleagues to function in the rapidly growing world of information they often find themselves feeling alone and overwhelmed. One group of Ohio school librarians took on the daunting challenge of keeping up with the continually changing world of information technology and together developed an innovative solution. This article discusses how to find new ways to work in the rapidly changing world of information with a little help from friends. It also presents the story of Ohio school librarians who created a professional development program, using videoconferencing, to meet the needs of librarians and teachers and to address the new state academic standards as well as 21st century literacy issues.
