October is Information Literacy Awareness Month


In October 2009, President Obama issued a proclamation recognizing the critical importance of information literacy and declared October as Information Literacy Awareness Month. One of the ways to celebrate this event is to improve your own information skills.


This academic year all first-year students are reading the book Justice: What’s the Right Thing to Do? and many courses are incorporating aspects of this text  through discussions involving complex moral and ethical decisions. This month UC Libraries invites you to think about issues related to the use of information. As we incorporate information sources into our work, we need to make sure we do the right thing. How do we know what is the right thing to do? What guides us in our decisions?

Every week in October, all over Langsam Library you’ll see questions  related to the use of information resources posted on chalkboards. Please respond to the prompt. We will  capture your responses and and summarize them in weekly blog posts.
