So like I said, I just want to talk a little about librarians supporting student transitions.But first, maybe a Little bit of background on me
So I gave this the title All together now. I think collaboration is really at the heart of all of this, but to be sure, it’s a means to end and not the end in and of itself. I say this up front as a small challenge to you all. Take what learn here today and move it forward. Build deeper collaborations, develop shared curriculums and impact your students.
