There are several go-to books on inquiry-based learning, but this one approaches it from the librarian's point of view.

As a librarian, I appreciated the slant that this book presents. It always disappoints me when I read about inquiry happening and there is no mention of the library or librarian.

This book has a lot of useful information in it. If your school's librarian was laid off though, you'll never be able to implement it.

Don't let the thin looks of this book fool you - it is a slow read. It has a lot to digest; it would be great to put it into practice.
