Since its publication in June 1998, Information Power has become the most talked about book in the school library world! It includes the standards that will help students become skillful producers and consumers of information along with the guidelines and principles that lead to dynamic, student-centered programs. The book's underlying concepts will guide you in:

  • helping students flourish in a learning community not limited by time, place, age, occupation, or disciplinary borders;
  • joining teachers and others to identify links in student information needs, curricular content, learning outcomes, and a variety of print and nonprint resources;
  • designing authentic learning tasks and assessments; and
  • defining your role in student learning.
