SCLA Information Literacy Round Table Seeking Officers!

From Anne Grant, Information Literacy Round Table Chair:

The Information Literacy Round Table aims to fulfill two objectives:

  1. To provide a forum for discussion and communication of information literacy-related activities and programs for all types of libraries and librarians throughout the state
  2. To promote information literacy as critical set of skills and understandings for full participation in society and therefore an essential component of library service.

Please contact Anne with nominations if you're interested in serving as an officer.  Voting will take place at the SCLA Conference after the 9 am session on Wednesday, October 24.
