"Because of their interaction with the entire school community and knowledge of information technologies, librarians are in a unique position to shape educational innovation. The international contributors to this volume argue that in order for librarians to emerge as leaders in the educational community, it is essential that careful attention be paid to current issues. Essay topics include new learners, new and multi-literacies, and teaching as a political activity." - School Library Journal Curriculum Connections
