School Librarians: Getting a Piece of the Stimulus Pie

Can information literacy be used by librarians to get Federal stimulus money? SLJ thinks so in an article titled School Librarians: Getting a Piece of the Stimulus Pie. The author is Debra Lau Whelan.

Whelan wrote, "Keep them informed about the exciting things you’re doing in the school library and how information literacy skills improve student achievement and relate to job readiness."

Information literacy would seem to help students. However, it is hard to prove these claims. Be prepared with good documentation and excellent political connections if you want a shot at the free billions being passed out right now by Uncle Sam.
