Project HAIL's main form of communication is the working group wiki, http://hailprojects.wikispaces.com.
PR and Outreach Working Group
Facilitator, Lisa Jarrell (email@example.com)
The PR and Outreach Working Group for the HAIL Project will focus on working with stakeholders outside of libraries to develop plans to implement HAIL. The group will also create publications for Indiana libraries and librarians to use to market their information literacy efforts and raise awareness of information literacy in their communities through HAIL efforts and initiatives.
Professional Development Working Group
Facilitator, Christina Wray (firstname.lastname@example.org)
The Professional Development Working Group for the HAIL Project will focus efforts on librarians and library personnel to increase their knowledge and comfort level in delivering information literacy education to their stakeholders.
Teacher Education Working Group
Facilitator, Jen Traore (email@example.com) or Brenda Yates-Habich (firstname.lastname@example.org)
The Teacher Education Working Group for the HAIL Project will focus on promoting information literacy components in Common Core Standards, including media specialists as a resource for implementation, to K-12 teachers and administrators.
Dual Credit Working Group
Facilitator, Shannon Johnson (email@example.com)
This group will focus on looking at the current trend towards dual-credit programs (college credits being offered in the high schools) and the implications for libraries and information literacy education in the state. Plans for this group are still forming as we add new members, but will likely include a survey of current dual-credit programs and IL instruction and looking into possible ways for librarians across the field (school, academic, and public) to work together in supporting/reaching this unique group of students. Meetings for this group are handled through telephone conferencing and the schedule is flexible.

Hoosiers and Information Literacy (HAIL)
The mission of the Academic Libraries of Indiana Hoosiers and Information Literacy Project (HAIL) is to actively promote information literacy efforts beginning with Indiana's youngest citizens and continuing through adulthood to foster in Hoosiers skills for finding the information they need and the ability to use that information effectively while building a knowledge base that will serve them throughout their lives.
ALI-HAIL-L is intended for all librarians and stakeholders in Indiana who are actively participating in the HAIL Project or have an interest in becoming actively involved by working in partnership with the Indiana library community to bring information literacy skills to the lives of all Hoosiers.
