Abstract

With time constraints and an overwhelming amount of information to wade through, students and teachers approach research projects with trepidation. School librarians desire to provide a smooth and beneficial experience for both teachers and students, including emphasizing efficient and ethical use of information during student research projects. However, when teachers are not able to schedule time in the school library, librarians must determine to approach information literacy acquisition through other means. Utilizing transmedia research guides, librarians may be able to embed information literacy instruction within projects, allowing students to build information and transliteracy skills, as well as transforming the role of the school librarian as an information consultant and instructional partner for students and teachers.
