This is our final regular show of Season One!! But stay tuned for info on our LOL (Linking Our Libraries) Podcast Awards Show coming up Thursday June 29!
You can download all of our podcast episodes at iTunes, or your podcast app of choice. And check out our website for all kinds of information on this topic!
Topic of the Week: Information Literacy
This material applies to all our patrons: students of all ages, senior citizens, new immigrants, soccer moms – everyone!
(We will not mention any names; but it was a little discouraging to see some of the very poorly designed websites with material on this topic, or websites filled with broken links. This is an important part of info literacy!)
From ACRL (Association of College and Research Libraries): http://www.ala.org/acrl/standards/informationliteracycompetency
“Information literacy is a set of abilities requiring individuals to “recognize when information is needed and have the ability to locate, evaluate, and use effectively the needed information.” 1
