Research indicates that collaboration is one of three key priorities school library media specialists should have if they want to make a difference at their schools. By working with the administrators and educators, school library media specialists can effectively integrate information literacy skills throughout the curriculum, and help to ensure that today's children and young adults will be capable and effective users of information as adults. This title fills a void in the professional literature by incorporating the information about the theory of collaboration available in the business and educational psychology literatures, and translating the pertinent material into ideas and methods useful to school library media specialists.
