October has been designated Information Literacy Month in Ohio by Governor John Kasich (here is the full proclamation). The proclamation “seeks to remind all citizens of the importance of the role of all libraries and librarians—academic, public, school, and special—in teaching information literacy, which fosters educational opportunities, economic prosperity, social cohesion, democracy, and quality of life.”
The Gardner-Harvey Library provides educational resources to assist in building your information literacy. Check out our tutorials and research guides, or talk to an information literacy expert on your library staff!
Here is a quick list of information literacy skills and how you can use some of our resources to build them up.
