Information Literacy Initiative

The Vermont Consortium of Academic Libraries (VCAL) and the Vermont School Librarians Association (VSLA) have joined forces to promote information literacy as an essential skill for all Vermonters, with a special focus on high school and college students and academic success.

A joint working group (Jane Kearns, Eileen Gatti, Nancy Frawley (VCAL); Sharon Taylor, Susan Monmaney, Cheryl Kissel (VSLA)) has been charged with the following as a first step in this effort: “The Information Literacy Working Group will circulate a letter focused on the benefits of an informationally literate student body to Vermont school committees in time for National Information Literacy Month in October 2016.”
