A panel of school and academic librarians that work with students transitioning from high school to college will describe the programs and practices offered at their institutions and offer their insights. The panelists are knowledgeable of AASL and ACRL Information Literacy Competencies, TRAILS, the INFOhio/OhioLINK 12-13 Transition initiative, academic library programs for high schools, and high school practices. Join the conversation, ask questions, and share your stories as we work together to discover the best way to support students’ academic success.
