GABRIELLA SONNTAG described a local consortium in north San Diego county, where three institutions--Palomar Community College, Mira Costa Community College, and CSU San Marcos--share their students, resources, and facilities. To better prepare high school students for college, these three campuses developed and implemented "Information Competence for High Schools (ICHS)." A series of forums for administrators, teachers was conducted to initiate dialogue between the six school districts to discuss how to develop information competence and to create a place for discussion and support.
