In this webinar, learn some of the benefits of collaborating with your librarian, from unit planning to class visits, as well as how to set your students up for success in their research projects. Learn some best practices on integrating the library resources, both digitally and in print. Get a glimpse at successful collaboration models that some teachers are developing with both librarians in school and at the local public library, including the New York City’s Public Libraries’ MyLibraryNYC program. Preview the Digital Collections, the New York Public Library’s online gallery of digitized images, including photographs, pictures, maps, and letters, which is free to use and accessible online across the country and around the world. Hear about some collection highlights which have relevance across K-12 content and then get an in-depth look at a few selected primary sources with direct connections to Social Studies curriculum. Learn about some additional digital tools and specific ways to enhance your students’ explorations of primary and secondary sources. This presentation will include handouts on best practices for integrating library resources, online tools, and a guide to using our Electronic Resources.
