Presenter: Alicia K. Long, Reference & Instruction Librarian at State College of Florida Libraries
Overview: Collaboration = High School Media Specialists and College Librarians Working Together
Learn about how librarians in one FL County developed a plan for collaboration between academic and school librarians in order to improve information literacy skills for students from 9th grade to college graduation. With an increase of Dual Enrollment (DE) opportunities, colleges and universities are seeing an influx of high school students as patrons. Some of them take DE courses in their high schools and never set foot in the college campus. How can academic librarians reach their younger new patrons more effectively? And how can media specialists make sure their students are college-ready?
Alicia K. Long was Outreach Specialist for the past few years and is now the program liaison for Dual Enrolled students at SCF. In addition to general reference and instruction services, she also coordinates services for the campus' Collegiate School (6th-12th grades) and curates the Young Adult collection of the SCF Libraries.
