Hosted by Academic Libraries of Indiana HAIL (Hoosiers and Information Literacy) group, College Ready, College Bound is a multi-year project examining the role of high school media specialists and library curriculum in student learning, preparation, and transition to college. As part of College Ready, College Bound, area high school media specialists give a standard information literacy assessment to their students. Assessment scores will eventually be compared to scores of students who do not receive library instruction as part of their curriculum. Throughout the process, school media specialists are being interviewed about their experiences and asked to participate in focus groups to help identify common challenges and best practices. The primary investigator on the project, Rhonda Huisman, will share her information about her research and insights she has gained regarding the transition from high school to college.
