2014 Information Literacy Campaign

Are you a resident of one of the states listed in the menu on the right*? If so, congratulations! The efforts of information literacy enthusiasts in your state led to your governor's issuing a proclamation of October as National Information Literacy Awareness Month.

Help draw attention to your state's recognition of what President Obama designated as skills that Americans must gain in order to "effectively navigate the Information Age" by sharing the badge created by Libraries Thriving and the National Forum on Information Literacy. Find directions for posting to your social networking sites, sharing in your email signature, and more below.
