At The 2010 LLA Conference

Successful Transitions: How Librarians Can Help Prepare Students for College Research

This panel discussion was well-attended even thought it was both added late and held in the upstairs Mezzanine. The attendees were very clearly interested in the issues discussed.

Chair Debra Rollins and the rest of ACRLLA encourage anyone consider joining our School to College Transitions committee.

(Unfortunately, my rechargeable camera batteries are getting too old; I recharged them before I left home and they were still running low. So I don't have a lot of pictures or videos. But if anyone else does and wants to add them to our page, let me know! -- Karen Niemla)
