This pa­per en­com­passes the role of school li­brar­i­ans as knowl­edge­able in­struc­tional part­ners and valu­able col­lab­o­ra­tors with teach­ers, ad­min­is­tra­tors, and other school per­son­nel to ad­dress the di­verse cur­ric­u­lar, non-cur­ric­u­lar, and in­for­ma­tion needs of the learn­ing en­vi­ron­ment. This col­lab­o­ra­tion re­sults in cre­at­ing lessons that are in­for­ma­tive and en­gag­ing for all stu­dents. As the im­por­tance of in­for­ma­tion lit­er­acy grows, so as the nec­es­sary func­tions of school li­brar­i­ans as in­dis­pens­able com­po­nents of the teach­ing and learn­ing process. One in­di­ca­tor of a suc­cess­ful col­lab­o­ra­tion is the in­te­gra­tion of the me­dia and in­for­ma­tion lit­er­acy pro­gram to the school’s cur­ricu­lum. Cre­ative teach­ing strate­gies, such as gam­i­fi­ca­tion, sto­ry­telling, demon­stra­tion, dis­cus­sion, role play­ing, film view­ing, and use of new me­dia and tech­nol­ogy, are uti­lized to en­hance teach­ing and learn­ing. Lit­er­acy in­struc­tion is a key to a suc­cess­ful stu­dent learn­ing. This is pro­vided to foster com­pe­tence and stim­u­late in­ter­est in read­ing, lis­ten­ing, view­ing, us­ing, and eval­u­at­ing of in­for­ma­tion and ideas ac­cu­rately and ef­fi­ciently. More­over, this is es­sen­tial to help stu­dents ac­quire skills they need to ac­cess, har­ness, and as­sess in­for­ma­tion for a pro­duc­tive and ful­fill­ing life. Key­words: school li­brar­i­ans; me­dia and in­for­ma­tion lit­er­acy; stu­dent learn­ing; teacher-li­brar­ian col­lab­o­ra­tion
