I was honored to participate in the BANDL Institute last summer. They
really shaped up a model of what education can be.
Kudos and cheers for my AMF '97 partner, Kathleen Ferenz. We, at the
Library of Congress, were sooooo sorry we couldn't be there. (Up to
our necks in this year's Summer Institutes).

>What an event, AND what leaders! I've just been to the "Digital Curriculum
>Expo" that Kath Ferenz (BANDL Project Director) and Lynn Jones (Cal Heritage
>Project Director) put together during ALA/SF. The inquiry-based projects
>were spectacular---student work, teacher-librarian collaborations, primary
>resources---it was all there. As many school librarians struggle with the
>inevitable problems, this group has put it together. Take a look (and
