High School to College Transition Interest Group

Symposium on Preparing Students for College Level Research 2.0

CDLC and the Questar III School Library System are collaborating once again to bring academic and K-12 school librarians to the table to discuss best practices that will help prepare students for college-level research. This symposium has been expanded to include public librarians and current college students in the conversation.

The goal is to give teachers and librarians resources and ideas to help current students prepare for the rigors of research in the college setting. it is intended to be an interactive event and an opportunity to connect regional academic and school librarians, and to hear how public libraries support students. All types of librarians and library staff are welcome. 

This program takes place at the Questar III offices, located at 10 Empire State Blvd. in Castleton, just off of Exit 10 of I-90. The program takes place in their conference center rooms on the first floor.
