Resource Alert: Knowledge Quest

Knowledge Quest is devoted to offering substantive information to assist building-level library media specialists, supervisors, library educators, and other decision makers concerned with the development of school library media programs and services. Articles address the integration of theory and practice in school librarianship and new developments in education, learning theory, and relevant disciplines.

KQWeb, the on-line component of Knowledge Quest, is dedicated to enhancing the print publication with expanded articles and original content. This month's edition is on visual literacy and the oline component is filled with excellent articles. Here are just a few:
