iB4 is the necessary, and often overlooked, framework individuals need B4 starting research in an academic or school library. Combining several modalities including mindfulness, SEL, mediation, and conscious information literacy, iB4 concepts can help librarians create more intentional FYE lessons or k-12 curriculum for the adolescents they serve.

Chani Craig is currently a school librarian in Whitefish, Montana, with over 25 years of experience in education as a teacher, coach, librarian, and (most importantly) a student. Studying and teaching in Italy, Japan, and Australia, as well as on both coasts of the US has given Ms. Craig a unique perspective on contemplative educational practices and identifying instructional methods that transcend areas and cultures.
