President Obama Makes Proclamation on the Importance of Information Literacy

President Obama has made a Proclamation that created Information Literacy Month for October.  According to the National Forum on Information Literacy, “Information Literacy is defined as the ability to know when there is a need for information, to be able to identify, locate, evaluate, and effectively use that information for the issue or problem at hand.”

President Obama has made his declaration about the importance of information literacy at all ages, and the library is one organization that is working towards the education of and improvements in information literacy, which is why the Resnick Library has decided to create a post about this important proclamation.
