Overview:
The North Lake College Library (NLCL) is known for its tradition of bridging the gap between instructor and library. This past year, the library took its work a step further. As part of EDUC 1300, a class aimed at allowing first-year college students to gain a strong footing in the academic world, the library incorporated information literacy components into normal classroom instruction. While partnering with the EDUC instructor, the academic librarians incorporated online and database driven resources, information regarding print and non-print research, and pathways into transfer and employment. Careful emphasis was placed on the difference between high school “reports” and college “research” papers, and the librarian and instructor were charged with educating the first-year students on college expectations. At the end of the course, the students were assessed on what they learned and how they plan to use their newfound knowledge in future endeavors.

This webinar will take a close look at this enriched program at the North Lake College Library. Participants will learn how early and continued exposure to the academic library can increase preparedness, degree understanding, and overall college readiness, and specifically, how all of this relates to the success of the first-year student.
