Scan Vol 30 No 3 August 2011 23 Conclusion Teacher librarians, who have a cross curricular view of information literacy in school, would appear to be ideal candidates for initiating discussion on information literacy practices and transfer in schools. The implications of this study for teacher librarians include a need for teacher librarians to revise the methods they use to develop information literacy practices in their schools; a need for discussion between teachers, teacher librarians and school managers about the transfer of knowledge, skills and practices across the curriculum, as a preliminary to a discussion of the transfer of information literacy practices; and an open discussion between teacher librarians, teachers and students about developing a culture of transfer in their schools. ■ Abilock, D .
