Information Literacy for the 21st Century Learner: Reaching At-Risk High School and Community College Students

This teleconference examines information literacy instruction and the relationship between information literacy and student success in moving from high school to community college. There is a particular emphasis on “at-risk” students. This program is a report on a three-year Leadership Gran form the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) awarded to the Network of Illinois Learning Resources in Community Colleges (NILRC).

The guest panel discusses the importance of information literacy skills, the benefits of collaboration between high schools and community colleges and describes the toolkit of resources created as a part of the grant project.
