October Is Information Literacy Month

unesco-2The Vermont Consortium of Academic Libraries, Vermont School Library Association, and the Vermont Library Association believe that information literacy is crucial to Vermonters’ success from K-20, into the workplace and continuing throughout the lifespan. While librarians and libraries provide the foundation for teaching information literacy skills, offering quality information sources and collaborative spaces for all Vermonters, we do not work alone in valuing and building these skills…There is an urgent need for dialog among key stakeholders to raise awareness of the importance of information literacy as a lifelong skill, strengthen channels of communication to help students transition their skills from one setting to another, and to help Vermont’s students become information literate adults and citizens.
