Getting busy with P-16 Information Literacy

  • Are you tired of seeing information literacy treated as an afterthought in Georgia’s education curriculum?
  • Do you want to change teachers’ perception of information literacy from ‘nice if there’s time’ to ‘essential to teach’?
  • Are you interested in working toward the goal of a P-16 Information Literacy curriculum tied to the GPS?
  • Are you ready to do something about it on the afternoon of June 10 at the GLMA Summer Institute?

If you said yes to the above, come to a meeting of the task force “Charting a Course to Improve Information Literacy in GA through Organizational Collaboration”. We’ll outline what we’ve done so far and what’s left to do, as well as identify organizations and groups throughout the Georgia educational community that we can partner with on both local pilot projects and state-wide initiatives. Get in on the planning stage! If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at ncohen@uga.edu

Thanks!  Nadine Cohen (UGA Instruction/Reference Librarian)
