October is National Information Literacy Awareness Month

From NFIL (National Forum on Information Literacy)

October is National Information Literacy Awareness Month, per proclamation by President Obama.

In today’s digital world, people who are information literate know how to find, access, and critically evaluate information to improve their health, their environment, their education and workplace performance.

Having that skill set empowers them to interpret and make informed decisions about their lives, in essence, taking more responsibility for their own individual welfare and that of the nation.
