"It is important that high school students have the opportunity to prepare for the transition to university” according to McMaster’s First Year Experience Librarian, Krista Godfrey.

Godfrey invites grade 12 classes to attend research skills classes in Mills Library during the months of October and March.  This is a great chance for students to experience research in a university library.  The classes take place in the newly renovated Wong e-Classroom which is equipped with smart boards and new Mac dual boot laptops.  Following the class students will be able to identify and retrieve scholarly information for a school assignment and explain the differences between library research in high school and university. Bookings are now being taken for March 2009.

Sessions are available to grade 12 classes from the Hamilton-Wentworth and Halton School Boards.  For more information regarding the classes, consult the website http://library.lib.mcmaster.ca/liaison/classes. To book a visit, contact Krista Godfrey at (905) 525-9140, ext. 24719 or godfrey@mcmaster.ca.
