Information Literacy Month

By admin | October 5, 2016

October is Information Literacy Month! Recognizing the importance of information literacy as a key component in effective decision making and enhancing one’s ability to compete in the workforce and global economy, Governor Gina Raimondo has proclaimed October as Information Literacy Month.  This is the fourth year that the Governor’s Office has recognized and supported the importance of information literacy.

The Information Literacy Action Round Table (ILART) of the Rhode Island Library Association (RILA) will celebrate information literacy month with an information literacy showcase, “Putting Information Literacy to Work!” at the Cranston Public Library on Thursday, October 13 from 4:00 to 6:00 pm.  Public, school, and academic librarians will share programming successes that support Workforce Development.  Featured services include job search resources, career education, support for small businesses, and employment programs.  There will be simultaneous tabletop poster and multimedia presentations and the opportunity to network with presenters and other librarians.

Come join OLIS as we celebrate Information Literacy Month with RILA!
