We are pleased to announce the recipients of our first ever award of the ACRL Oregon School/ Academic Librarian Collaboration Scholarship: Delia Wallis of Hermiston High School and Jacquelyn Ray of Blue Mountain Community College. This scholarship was created to foster collaboration between academic librarians and school librarians.
Wallis and Ray intend to use their award for a project that will identify key gaps in the writing skills of students leaving high school and entering college. Wallis and Ray will align the curriculum standards of their institutions and survey their faculty on issues they see that may be addressed by information literacy efforts. The culmination of this work will be channeled into an all-day workshop for educators.
In addition, they will be collaborating with academic and school librarians in the Salem-Keizer area who just completed a similar program and are eager to share their experiences.
Our congratulations to Delia Wallis and Jacquelyn Ray. We look forward your successful collaboration.
