We convened a group of local and campus constituents as an advisory board, with representatives from IUPUI School of Education, Ivy Tech Community College, Indiana Department of Education, K-12 schools in Marion County, and IUPUI University library board members. We utilized their expertise and community connections to create successful and sustainable partnerships by focusing on: - Commitment to build upon the strengths and resources of the K-12 school librarians, teachers, administrators, and community members. - Commitment to addressing problems and focusing on positives, and promotion of a process that actively addresses social inequalities - Ongoing attention to involvement of all members across phases of the research, which meant active, inclusive, and numerous meetings and conversations with the school librarians, and many opportunities for feedback - Dissemination of findings and knowledge gained to all partners
