Transfer students. How did they get here? Where are they off to? This program will give attendees an understanding of the experiences of students transitioning from community colleges to four year academic programs. Learn about where these students are coming from, where they are going, and the kinds of experiences they’ve had, especially related to information literacy instruction and use of library resources. Our featured keynote speaker is Thomas Atwood, Coordinator of Information Literacy & Library Instruction at the University of Toledo, part of the OhioLINK consortium, who will talk about developing instructional programs to meet the needs of transfer students. The rest of the day will consist of a variety of presentations and discussions to help you better understand the transfer student experience and prepare them for success. Lunch will be provided. Stay tuned for more details and information on the ACRL-MD blog and the MILEX website.
