Building Success beyond High School with Career-and College-Ready Literacies

Knowledge Quest Volume 44, Number 5, ISSN 1094-9046


When secondary school librarians teach students digital life literacies, they help students perceive that librarians can provide support for real-life problems. The more librarians work with students, create inviting library environments, and have positive engagements with students, the more they change student perceptions of librarians in general. School librarians play a significant role in creating life-long library users and supporters, and their role as a vital link in the career-ready/ college-ready chain is a significant but often overlooked one. Working with high school teachers to create a plan for transitioning students will help alleviate barriers to their success for years to come.
