Congratulations, New York State!!
New York Proclamation[/button] Information literacy practice is the key to providing each state and U.S. territory with a broad spectrum of options and opportunities designed specifically to meet the social and economic challenges facing its citizenry in the 21st century.
Securing a gubernatorial information literacy proclamation from all 50 states and U.S. territories is a major National Forum initiative headed by Dr. Sharon Weiner, Vice President of the National Forum on Information Literacy and W. Wayne Booker Chair in Information Literacy at Purdue University Libraries.
October is National Information Literacy Awareness Month. The state of New York recently issued a gubernatorial proclamation establishing October as information literacy month in New York State.
Led by a team headed by Trudi Jacobson at University of New York/Albany and President-Elect Carol Anne Germain of the New York Library Association, with support from other state library professionals and advocates, New York state becomes the second state to issue an information literacy gubernatorial proclamation – Massachusetts the first.
Needless to say…We Love NY!
