Students transitioning to college have a steep learning curve and librarians in school, public, and academic libraries have consistently tried to make this transition easier. What if one way to accomplish this was to better understand how our colleagues in different institutions describe using library resources and the research process? If we all used similar terminology or analogies, would it help new college students pick up where they left off in high school? Join your colleagues and the LIRT Transitions from High School to College Committee for a lively discussion and sharing of terminology, concepts, and analogies in order to help students transition to the next phase in their library research.

The attached handout is the same that our in-person attendees will be using to being the discussion. Our online forum will not be moderated, but we will be checking in from time to see what discussion is happening there.
