This mixed-methods study was based on the evident need for communication of information literacy skill expectations between the K–12 school systems and higher education. Both incoming university freshmen and high school seniors were assessed with the use of TRAILS (Tool for Real-Time Assessment of Information Literacy Skills). Qualitative analysis of individual interviews with school and academic librarians as well as focus groups was coded for themes related to communication, curriculum planning, and administrative support.
