Information Literacy Month & Webinar

By admin | October 5, 2012

October is Information Literary Month in Rhode Island, as proclaimed by Governor Lincoln Chafee on September 10.  RI is one of 10 states participating in the National Forum on Information Literacy’s (NFIL) 2012 Information Literacy campaign.  The campaign was brought to the attention of the Governor in a joint effort by the RI Library Association and School Librarians of RI.

Information literacy is one of the critical competencies essential for developing a skilled, competitive workforce. On Tuesday, October 16, 2012, NFIL and Credo Reference/Libraries Thriving will host a webinar focusing on the 21st century skills that all learners will need to compete effectively in today’s dynamic global economy.  Celebrate Information Literacy Month by participating in this webinar and learning more about what you can do to support information literacy.
