Reviews for Daniel Callison's 2015 publication ' The Evolution of Inquiry: Controlled, Guided, Modeled, and Free': http://www.abc-clio.com/LibrariesUnlimited/product.aspx?pc=A4074P

The Library Quarterly published a lengthy review in January 2017 of Daniel Callison's recent book publication The Evolution of Inquiry. The review concludes:

"Callison presents the reader with a historical and comprehensive review of the various education and school library models integral to the concepts of inquiry. The work creates a strong argument for why school librarians can and should be involved in 'the scaffold building toward greater independent learning' (11). Drawing parallels to the author’s statement that 'inquiry requires students to be active rather than passive learners' (57), the contents of The Evolution of Inquiry do not lead readers through a controlled story but represent an admirable lifetime of research, which can be interpreted and utilized by those willing to free their minds from the constraints of the library profession."
