How can K-12 and academic librarians prepare learners to work successfully in information- and technology-rich environments so they will be college-ready? How can we librarians expand our focus from information literacy to incorporate all 21st Century skills that boost deep content understanding, and successfully collaborate with teachers and professors to truly integrate these skills?
