I can’t believe I learned this is now an official month! This is great. I always say I was interested in Information Literacy before I knew to call it “Information Literacy.” Thanks Obama! 🙂
I recently wrote – like a few hours ago – a paper on information literacy for one of my library school classes. Turns out President Obama declared October as National Information Literacy Month in 2009. I would add a hyperlink to whitehouse.gov so you can read it for yourself, but with the government shutdown, the link might be broken.
In your opinion, is information literacy a human right?
