Presentation Description

Even high-achieving high school students can be intimidated by classic academic systems that have been seemingly designed by the educated for the (already) educated. This Library of Congress Classification System Workshop explains how to look at a new system and initiates students into the next stage of education, eliminating anxiety and promoting critical thnking about how to do academic research in college. The secondary purpose of the workshop is to prepare students to complete a hands-on activity in the library, learning about resources beyond books and the internet, where those resources are located in the library, and how they are organized.
