The article offers insights on how teacher-librarians could deliver information literacy to students. Information literacy involves steps, including planning research, organizing a way to search, finding resources and expressing the information learned in meaningful ways. Teacher-librarians can help in addressing information literacy by using an information gathering model, providing rich opportunities and providing ways for students to repackage information. Professional resources including the "Get Them Thinking! Use Media Literacy to Prepare Students for State Assessments" and "Information Literacy: Search Strategies, Tools & Resources for High School Students," are also presented.
