After watching the 30 second thoughts on AASL website, school librarians are still needed to help guide students in navigating the ever increasing print and non-print media. The information will enable students to conduct research to answer questions, solve problems and analyse the vast amount of material that is out there. Student should have a place to feel secure and welcome to enable learning, be critical users of information and be good digital citizens. TL’s have the expertise to run programs to educate staff and students in information literacy. TL’s need to speak up to maintain their place in the school as an educational leader.
