Information Literacy Outreach: Building a High School Program at California State University Northridge

EJ989512 - Information Literacy Outreach: Building a High School Program at California State University Northridge.
Research Sleuths's insight:

California State University partnered up with Northridge Academy High School to create a program that helps address the information literacy needs of high school students. The purpose of this program is to help ease the transition from high school to higher education. Research had found that students were graduating without the research and critical thinking skills needed to succeed at the college level. Both California State University and Northridge Academy High School wanted to collaborate together to introduce students to academic libraries so that they are more comfortable navigating information when they attend college.
