Bringing College Information Literacy to High Schools

In this session, the presenters outline how academic and school librarians collaborated to bring a college-level information literacy course to rural high schools, extending positive impacts on college student success and equity to high school students. Discussions include how library academic support practices can be adapted to be more inclusive and equitable and how school librarians can collaborate more intensely with English teachers to ensure student success for all. Session recorded during the 2021 AASL National Conference.
