Most countries are facing major challenges in educating students from kindergarten through the university for productive lives in the information age. Governments and business leaders are challenging educators to provide students with skills to live and work effectively in the information age. Cooperative ventures between teachers and librarians in the area of information literacy may provide a solution to these educational challenges. Changing teaching methodology to prepare students for life‐long learning may be another solution. In this article, Rader defines various concepts. She offers suggestions and guidelines to help teacher‐librarian collaborations effectively educate students for the twenty‐first century.
