  8. 8. Your views… • What is your opinion of what we have done? • Do you think these school students have taken the first steps to being ‘research ready’ and ultimately ‘independent learners’, if so why/why not? • Do you think it is our responsibility as ‘university librarians’ to help bridge the gap? • In your role as an information professional, are you already bridging the gap, if you are, please share with us how and why?
