Early College High School/Dual Credit-High School Librarians and the ACC Library: Collaboration

This is a guide to ACC library resources for High School librarians who serve students also taking classes at Austin Community College.

Collaboration Makes Us Better

We want to work with you! Contact one of us to discuss how we can work together to better serve our students. Slides from the 2018 Library Instruction Roundtable Summit display some positive collaborations we have had already. Thank you for your continued support.  

Why a partnership?

Typically, an ACC professor requests a class at one of our high school partners. An ACC librarian may reach out to you to co-teach this class! Why? See the reasons listed below:


Success in Collaboration

Mary also co-taught with Lanier High School librarian Emily Hersh. The professor accidentally booked both librarians on the same day. Emily and Mary spontaneously divided up the lesson for a successful Information Literacy event. Other successes include:


Tips for Collaboration

Collaboration can be messy but it works really well. Here are a few tips. Questions? Contact us! We are happy to work with you!

Levels of Collaboration

Hopefully you've met one of the ACC librarians that visit the high schools. That is the first level of engagement and collaboration. Below is our plan to increase our engagement and collaboration by levels. Mary has successfully co-taught with Sara Stewart at Austin High School for an ACC Speech class. It went well and the students really seemed to benefit from two librarians.

Challenges in Collaboration

There will always be challenges but we encourage you to work with an ACC librarian if you have Early College High School or Dual Credit students on your campus. Our contact information can be found on the first page of this LibGuide.
