The Power of Information That is Freely Available

Spencer Jardine, our Coordinator of Instruction and Reference Librarian, does a blog, Information Literacy at ISU, and gave me permission to reprint his latest blog entry when I asked him if he had anything about October being named National Information Literacy Awareness Month. See our Instructional Services and Research Guides pages for more information.

“A colleague from my library-school program shared this on Facebook, and I thought it would be useful to post here: Effects of introducing Internet at a village public library in Ukraine. President Barack Obama officially announced October to be National Information Literacy Awareness Month now. Take a look also at the National Forum for Information Literacy.

The power of information is immense, and the ability to access, evaluate, apply, and share information ethically is even more powerful.”
