Academic Library Research Visits for High School Students
Improve the transition to college for your students by giving them an academic library research experience while they're still in high school.
Many of Ohio's academic libraries have First Year Experience Librarians or Outreach Librarians who will work with high school librarians and teachers to provide Ohio's high school seniors with an introduction to the college research experience. The link above provides information on who to contact and what you can expect on your academic library visit.
Don't have the time or funding to make the trip to an academic library?
  • Some First Year Experience Librarians or Outreach Librarians will come to you. They can give your students an introduction to the academic library using a combination of INFOhio resources and library-specific information.
  • Some academic librarians offer workshops specifically for high school teachers and librarians. You and your colleagues can learn about current trends and practices in academic libraries and take that information back to your students.
