"Libraries, Learning, and Student Success" with keynote speaker Glenda Ritz
Wednesday, September 18
4:30pm - 6:30pm
Indiana Landmarks Center

Librarians, teachers, parents, and community members are invited to "Libraries, Learning, and Student Success" on Wednesday, September 18, from 4:30pm - 6:30pm at the Indiana Landmarks Center at 1201 Central Ave., Indianapolis, IN 46202.   The event is sponsored by IUPUI's College Ready, College Bound project, and will feature a keynote address by Glenda Ritz, Indiana Superintendent of Public Instruction. Parking is free, and light refreshments will be served.

College Ready, College Bound is a multi-year project examining the role of high school librarians and library curriculum in student learning, preparation, and transition to college. The project began as conversations about connections, relationships, and future partnerships between high school and academic librarians.  Under the leadership of Rhonda Huisman, IUPUI's Education Librarian, and with funding from CICF (Central Indiana Community Fund), College Ready, College Bound has been able to build on these conversations and gather data about the impact of school librarians at the high school and university levels, their common challenges, and best practices.  "Libraries, Learning, and Student Success" will expand the conversation to the larger community.

For more information about the College Ready, College Bound Information Literacy Initiative, contact Rhonda Huisman at

It's the calm before the storm...but in no time, students will return and many of the libraries will be anything but quiet.  While libraries continue to be an excellent central hangout, each year more and more students expect to be able to do most, if not all, of their research online.  Keeping new (and returning) students well informed about all the resources they have available will assist them as they navigate new classes.  For example, an excellent app called BrowZine is featured on the IUB Libraries main page.  This app allows you to browse journals on your tablet in a magazine like format.  For more information, check out the article!
