Description: High school teacher-librarians face increasing challenges in preparing their students for college success. The dire need for librarians in California K-12 schools makes these challenges all the more difficult. College and university librarians also face increasing challenges in helping new students adjust and learn how to learn for scholarly research needs and lifelong learning.

What are the obstacles and opportunities you face in working with teachers and higher education faculty and others in the crucial transition to college timeframe? What has worked for you and your colleagues in helping high school students, teachers/faculty, and new college students with this kind of transition? How have you reached out to those in other types of institutions and organizations to help each other with these efforts? Sharing your innovations, your experimental attempts, your successes, and even your failures can help you and your colleagues move forward toward successful models for this effort. 30-minute panel sessions, 10-minute lightning talks, and poster sessions will address many of these issues crucial to helping students succeed in transitioning from high school to college.
