The Skills Gap Crisis from High School to College Event Report

The High School to College Committee of the Western New York Library Resources Council invited SEM librarian Beth Lewitzky and Jamie Smith of ECC to describe their findings on high school student information literacy deficiency.

Beth spoke at a conference of academics, administrators and teachers on Thursday at Dry Memorial Library on the North Campus of Erie Community College (ECC). Beth is a member of SEM’s capstone team and believes her research will benefit SEM students as we implement our program and work to build a showcase program here that will ready young women for the rigors of college.

The program received media coverage from local NPR station WBFO/88.7FM. You can listen here.
