Bridging the Terminology:  A Collaborative Effort to Help High School Students Transition to College

Sunday January 26, 2014
1:00 pm to 2:30 pm
Pennsylvania Convention Center -- Room 113 C


Students transitioning to college have a steep learning curve and librarians in school, public, and academic libraries have consistently tried to make this transition easier. What if one way to accomplish this was to better understand how our colleagues in different institutions describe using library resources and the research process? If we all used similar terminology or analogies, would it help new college students pick up where they left off in high school? Join your colleagues and the LIRT Transitions from High School to College Committee for a lively discussion and sharing of terminology, concepts, and analogies in order to help students transition to the next phase in their library research.
