Every October our thoughts turn to National Information Literacy Awareness Month. Information Literacy, making sure people can find, evaluate for quality and use the information that they need, is a big part of any library Program. It’s no longer enough to be literate, as in being able to read, but you must be literate in figuring out where you can get information and separating the wheat from the chaff to make sure the information you’ve found is good.
You can also download the badge, like the one above, please share it on your various social media sites to help make people aware of the importance of good information.
