From these dialogues, we hope to solidify partnerships collaborate to better assist our students with the transition from high school to college.


Purpose of the Summit

  • To collaborate with high school librarians from selected Texas high schools in order to share expertise.
  • Initiate a culture of conversation and dialog with the librarians who know many of our future students best. 
  • Infuse curriculum change from within, with specific focus on information literacy skills.


Goals for the Summit

  • Identify overlapping and scaffolding of information literacy skills across high school and college.
  • Share resources, research, tips, and talking points to facilitate integration of information literacy into the classroom.
  • Create a learning community between Texas high school and academic librarians.



The Summit took place on June 14th, 2013 and, according to evaluations, was very successful and left all partipants desiring follow-up discussions. Guiding documentation, including schedules, worksheets, and documented discussions are available on this wiki. Adaptations of all materials are encouraged; the only thing we ask is that you let us know how they are being used so we can create a community of practice!
