Monthly Highlights--Collaborative Lessons The Library Media Center is now using Libguides to create pathfinders for all lessons and professional development resources this school year. Embedding content and instruction in Libguides will assist in achieving the Library Media Center’s 2011-2012 goal of increasing transparency, transliteracy , and collaboration at HS North. The LMC is also using Google Calendar appointment slots. Teachers are now able to book class slots online using this feature.
