National Information Literacy Awareness Month 2012

Information Literacy Supporter BadgeInformation Literacy, making sure people can find, evaluate for quality and use the information that they need, is a big part of any library. Here at Kirkwood Library Services we help students and faculty with Information Literacy every day, but we’re glad that this official month focuses attention on the importance of being able to deal with information well.

Just discovered National Information Literacy Awareness Month last year. Sadly October is already a very busy month. I need some help brainstorming ideas on what the library can do next year. What do you suggest?

In the meantime post the badge to your social media from here:
