An ongoing series, sponsored by Bunch Library and the Office of Academic Outreach, that allows for communication and collaboration among area middle, high school, and academic librarians for the purpose of preparing students to transition to college. The focus is on information literacy.
Bunch Library has hosted these events, which includes dinner, a presentation, and lots of conversation, each semester since spring of 2006. Conversation topics vary for each event and presenters rotate between academic and school librarians. The majority of attendees are librarians, but many teachers also participate, making this a truly collaborative community of educators.
The last Conversations @ Belmont event was held November 7, 2011.
