October is National Information Literacy Awareness Month

The National Forum on Information Literacy (NFIL) was created in 1989 as a response to the recommendations of the American Library Association’s Presidential Committee on Information Literacy. Today, the National Forum on Information Literacy is a robust collaborative of over 93 national and international organizations working together, on various levels, to mainstream this critical, 21st century educational and workforce development concept throughout every segment of society.

The NFIL is collaborating with Libraries Thriving for the promotion of National Information Literacy Awareness Month. To view the proclamation issued by President Obama establishing October as National Information Literacy Awareness Month, please visit http://www.librariesthriving.org
