FLITE Training - High School Library Research Day
students in FLITE

Is your high school class working on a research project? Do you want to open your students' eyes to the world of information available to them and introduce them to a university library setting at the same time?

Whether you're teaching science, literature, history, or something else entirely, the librarians at the Ferris Library for Information, Technology, and Education (FLITE) would love to help. Bring your class to Ferris for customized library instruction designed to help your students with their research.

While you're here, attend a session with University Admissions. Admissions will provide a boxed lunch (Academic Year 2013-14).

Sample Itinerary:
