Picking Up Momentum - Information Literacy State Proclamation Initiative
Empowering educational and workplace communities around the nation - over 26 states are in the process of securing a gubernatorial information literacy public policy proclamation.
“To prosper in the Digital Age, people must become masters of information,”
NFIL began this initiative with a recommendation to President Barack Obama, who issued a national proclamation in 2009. The President of NFIL, Dr. Lana W. Jackman, made a request to Governor Deval L. Patrick, who issued a proclamation in 2011. So far, twenty-six states and one U.S. territory have committed to draft and seek gubernatorial information literacy proclamations:
If you would like to work with the project coordinators in one of these states, or if you would like to initiate the process in a state or territory that has not yet committed to draft a proclamation, please contact Dr. Sharon Weiner, Vice-President of the National Forum on Information Literacy, Professor of Library Science, and W. Wayne Booker Chair in Information Literacy at Purdue University at email@example.com.
Established in 1989, the National Forum on Information Literacy is one of the premier organizations promoting information literacy philosophy and practice. For more information, please visit www.infolit.org.
