Libraries, archives and special collections have committed themselves to doing outreach to k-12 student populations. Traditionally, this outreach has frequently been done through the use of guided tours, classroom visits, and special programming. However, new media and access to readily available technologies have propelled information professionals to incorporate such technologies into teaching and learning. This presentation will provide the audience with an overview of the tools necessary to introduce collections care and access to high school students in special collections utilizing technology.
