Abstract: The restructuring of the Library at The Hills Grammar School in 2007 has provided a broader concept that links and connects the whole school community (students, teachers and parents) through research, knowledge and learning involving a wide range of collaborative practices and information communication technologies. A deliberate renaming of both the Library to NEXUS and the title of the Teacher Librarian 7-12 to Faculty Liaison Teacher Librarian was necessary to intentionally shift the mindset of staff away from the traditional Library paradigm to reflect the collaborative nature of the newly established centre and to provide the catalyst for change.
