    • 21. 5. Equitable access is a key component for education. 6. The definition of information literacy has become more complex as resources and technologies have changed. 7.

School libraries are essential to the development of learning skills
    • 22. The four new learning standards state that learners use skills, resources, and tools to (AASL, 2007, PDF ):
      • Inquire, think critically, and gain knowledge.
      • Draw conclusions, make informed decisions,
      • apply knowledge to new situations, and create
      • new knowledge.
      • Share knowledge and participate ethically and
