By Presidential Proclamation October is National Information Literacy Awareness month! In today’s digital world, people who are information literate know how to find, access, and critically evaluate information to improve their health, environment, education, and productivity.
Having this skill set empowers us to make informed decisions about our lives and, in essence, take more responsibility for our individual welfare and that of the nation.
Take a few minutes to recognize and appreciate the information literacy skills that you use every day. Try to imagine what your life would be like without them.
If you have any questions about what information literacy is or feel that your skills aren’t up to par, stop by the Information Services Desk and chat with a Librarian. We would be glad to help you out!
