Combo Platter: Collaborating Across Campus and with Different Institutions

Publication Date



The Gateway to College (GtC) program at Montgomery College serves at-risk high school students who complete their high school diploma requirements while simultaneously earning college credit.

In Fall 2010, the GtC Program Director, faculty, and instruction librarians launched a semester-long library instruction program. Librarians worked closely with faculty to design six two-hour sessions for GtC students, aligning ACRL Information Literacy Competency Standards with the course’s theme and assignments. The program has been repeated each semester, and expanded to all three campuses. In this presentation, we will share details about our collaboration and the resulting opportunities for evaluating student learning outcomes.
