This program was jam packed with useful information for both public and school librarians. Gail Bush started things out with some historical context, and then Tasha Squires presented the Nuts and Bolts of Collaboration (available as a powerpoint on the ALA conference materials wiki). She had some really helpful hints on initiating the partnerships, working with your administration and structuring the partnership. Keeping statistics is key. It was really helpful to see the partnerships in action with specific examples ranging from discusion groups to reading challenges. Lots of ideas for these difficult economic times.
