Obama declares October National Information Literacy Month

I am pleased to tell you that on October 1, 2009, President Obama signed a proclamation identifying October as National Information Literacy Awareness month. Information literacy is the academic library’s most important mission, to ensure that students have the ability to access, retrieve, and evaluate information by using critical thinking skills. At Andruss Library, we strive to provide the resources and support necessary to enhance information literary throughout the curriculum. We are actively involved in information literacy assessment. Please check here for our information literacy reports. If you have any questions about information literacy, or would like to find ways to integrate it into your course, please feel free to contact one of our reference librarians at 570-389-4204 or
