The theme of the March/April 2015 Knowledge Quest is Education Evolution. It explores the theme of AASL’s 17th National Conference & Exhibition, which will be held November 5-8, 2015, in Columbus, Ohio. Topics include the evolution of school library standards, the constancy of the founding values of school libraries amid education’s evolution, and how school library materials and the school librarian’s role have evolved.

Really enjoyed your column. Making a very clever use of AASL Confernce themes to tell your sgtory.
instaGrok? I searched World War 1. I selected three items of information. When I clicked on the source, all were Wikipedia.
How does something like this get into a school library publication?
Very much enjoyed Plugged In or Tuned Out by Jennifer Helfrich. A good overview of the implications of big data and how much is tracked. Think the article would be of interest to the broader library community.
