Outreach & Engagement

Special Events: Info Lit (3/30/20 - 6/6/20)

Info Lit on Instagram Live (@micadeckerlibrary), March 30 - May 6, 2020

Info Lit was a series of discussions with Library staff, artists, alumni, and others about art and design research. Info Lit, short for information literacy - and lit being a slang term dating as far back as the 1910s [1] - is the ability to locate, evaluate, and use information. Generally across the profession, Library staff are passionate about learning about the information needs of our communities so that we can help folks make informed choices and feel empowered in our space and beyond.

All future Info Lit events will be included on the Google calendar above. Info Lit is hosted by Jennifer Ferretti ('07) (@thecitythatreads), Digital Initiatives Librarian.
