Northeast Ohio Regional Library System - Event Information

Event Name:College Readiness: A collaboration between local schools and colleges
Competency:Collaboration and Community Awareness
Description:As the number of students enrolled in College Credit Plus courses continues to rise across the state, many colleges and universities find themselves challenged to adequately serve and provide support to this unique group of students.  Columbus State addressed this rising need by creating and sustaining partnerships with local area high school librarians and media specialists thanks in part to a OhioNET Community grant.  Employing a ‘train the trainer’ model, we equip high school librarians and media specialists with the resources necessary to address the college level research needs of their College Credit Plus students as well as meet the requests of College Credit Plus instructors in their high school.   The collaborative efforts have resulted in mutual support, engagement, and a true partnership between secondary and post-secondary institutions.

Learning objectives:
  • Attendees will gain insight into one college’s approach to collaboration with K-12 institutions
  • Learn to expand outreach to the College Credit Plus community

Lorena Popelka is a Reference and Instruction Librarian with Columbus State Community College.  Upon earning her Masters in Library Science degree in 2003, she worked for four years as a Youth Services Librarian with the Columbus Metropolitan Library system before joining Columbus State in 2012.  While she focuses on providing quality support to the students in attendance at Columbus State, she also led the K-12 Community Partnership initiative on behalf of the Columbus State Library.
