This site will work best if others contribute.  Here is what I am asking:

1.  Please send me any articles you have written that deal with library instruction issues.  (Obviously, only do this if you still retain the copyright to them!)  I will create a page for them at this site and link to it from the article page.  You will retain the copyright to your work.  I will remove it any time you ask me to do so.

2.  Please send me any library instruction lesson plans you have written.  These can be for any level of student.  I will create a page for them at this site and link to it from the lesson plan page.  You will retain the copyright to your work.  I will remove it any time you ask me to do so.

3.  If you know of any web resources that should be included in the links page, please let me know.

Please e-mail me at with any contributions.  Please take out the capital letters in the e-mail address so that it will work properly.

I hope you find this site useful.  Hopefully, as people become aware of this site, more and more content will be added and this can become a great resource for instruction librarians, K-12 teachers, and parents.
