The difference between high school college libraries and research

The Difference Between High School & College Libraries and Research

Seat Swap!

  • 2 tables of high school librarians

    • 5 at each table

  • 1 table of UT librarians

    Question for all tables:

    What do you perceive to be the differences between high school and college libraries and research?

  • From each group, select a scribe to compile a list of differences on the large flip charts on each table.

  • When you're done, hang up your page(s) on the closest window or wall.

The difference between high school college libraries and research1

The Difference Between High School & College Libraries and Research

Backing up our perceptions with evidence(and putting ourselves in our student's shoes)

  • Contance Mellon's research on Library Anxiety [1986]

    • Feelings of being lost stemmed from four causes:

      (1) the size of the library;

      (2) a lack of knowledge about where things were located;

      (3) how to begin, and

      (4) what to do.

  • Our own First-year student's survey data!

"I was scared to ask questions. I didn't want to bother anyone. I also didn't want them to think I was stupid."

"College asks that you evaluate your sources and question them whereas high school only asks that you understand them."

Dissecting first year university syllabi

Dissecting first-year university syllabi

Seat swap!

  • 4 tables, 2-3 HS librarians at each table;

  • 1-2 UT librarians at each table


    What and Why: Close reading of syllabus to assess what types of skills the students are expected to have when they come in

    How: Each table has a different syllabus. Use Worksheet #1 as a guide to work through the information literacy expectations and competencies that are found in first-year college courses.
