Don’t believe us? Ask Dr. Dee McKinney:
“Having an embedded librarian in a classroom provides tremendous advantages to students. The development of research skills, including how to use library resources fully, makes students stronger writers and critical thinkers. What is the gift of librarians? It’s to bring those specific learning tools to students in a meaningful way—this is their specialty. During my work with Katie, I’ve seen an increase in student success rates and how much libraries—and librarians—can assist students in ways I didn’t even consider.”
