K-16 Network

About Us

The Central PA K-16 Information Literacy Collaboration is a Network of school, college/university and public librarians joining together to enhance the information literacy experience of students as they transition from high school through college.

Establishment of the Network

The Central PA K-16 Information Literacy Network was born out of a need for a common understanding of information literacy issues in K-12 schools and how these might impact the student’s success in college/university.

A group of school, college/university and public librarians got together in a workshop held in the fall of 2004 to explore a number of information literacy-related issues. (more to come..)

Mission Statement

The Central PA K-16 Information Literacy Network connects public, school and academic librarians through annual workshops, face-to-face and virtual communication, and outreach with the common goal of developing students' information literacy skills across all levels of education.  As a collective, the Network supports and encourages local collaboration and professional development on information literacy and other library-related issues.
