Episode 15: Information Literacy

Image result for information literacy

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

Episode Two: Library Materials

Seed library at the Dunedin Public Library

This week we talk about the fun and interesting materials you might find in a library!

People’s vision of a library tends to revolve around books and computers, and of course we have those things. But there is so much more available!

This week our Spotlight Library is the Chelmsford Public Library. This is a library that has a lot of great innovation in their programming and services, as well as materials!
