Oregon Steps Up!
Through the leadership efforts of Abigail Elder, Immediate Past President of the Oregon Library Association and Library Manager, Community Services, City of Tualatin; State Librarian MaryKay Dahlgreen; and Oregon Library Association President Michele Burke, Oregon becomes the 7th state to endorse information literacy!
Governor John A. Kitzhaber, M.D. issued the proclamation on June 26, 2012. As an M.D., Governor Kitzhaber certainly recognizes the critical importance of information literacy skill development to the health and welfare of the people of Oregon.
