In an effort to implement recommendations made by the Task Force on the Educational Role of Libraries established by the American Association of School Librarians and the Association of College and Research Libraries in its Blueprint for Collaboration (American Library Association, 2006), a team of Kean University librarians created and is implementing a pilot project meant to foster development of information literacy competencies among students who will soon make the transition from high school to the university setting. The project team is working collaboratively with local high school teachers and library media specialists to develop information literacy lessons for high school students, and the plans are being implemented during high school class visits to the Kean University Library.
