A digital compilation of essays reflecting field experiences in public libraries, K-12 libraries, K-12 classrooms, college classrooms (online and face-to-face), academic libraries, museums, and more.

Here are some tidbits from the collection:
  • - how Lady Gaga's meat dress is an example of synthesis
  • - the importance of a lesson "hook"
  • - how to sneak an IL lesson into a tech lesson
  • - how a map can guide even the most experienced researchers
  • - bird unit sightings in public libraries ... and a physics classroom
