Presentation Description

This presentation addresses how academic library and high school partnerships can ease students’ transition from high school-level researchers to college-level researchers. Librarians at the J. Edgar and Louise S. Monroe Library at Loyola University New Orleans have cultivated relationships with three local high schools by introducing high school students to the academic library in the context of their current research projects. Each partnership presented a set of logistical challenges and instructional triumphs. Drawing from experience and best practices, the presenters will provide tips on developing relationships, scheduling, borrowing privileges, lesson planning, and maintaining communication between partners.
