Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this column is to examine the environment by which secondary students can avail themselves of college library resources when they are enrolled in a dual enrollment program.

Design/methodology/approach

This column presents the literature review and commentary on this topic that has been addressed by professionals, researchers and practitioners.

Findings

Colleges present the dual enrollment opportunity to secondary school students as an educational “entitlement”. An additional benefit is providing access to supplementary instruction and research materials through college library services, thus highlighting the college’s library resources as critical to the teaching and learning process.

Originality/value

The value in addressing this issue is to acquaint the reader with several examples of the manner by which the college library can benefit secondary school students enrolled in college courses.
