Training – Challenges and Opportunities teleconference series, “Information Literacy for Life,” which airs Friday, November 21, 2008, from 9 am to 10:30 a.m. PST – Virtual Library Training Room
Mary Evangeliste, Director of User Services & Outreach at Gettysburg College and co-founder of Fearless Future: Marketing & Design for things that matter, will bring together three librarians from three very different institutions and backgrounds to explore how school librarians, public librarians, and academic librarians can collaborate to create comprehensive information literacy programs that span a user’s lifetime. You’ll get the foundation for starting a local dialogue based on national principles. Mary will be joined by Alex Hodges, Assistant Director of Library Instruction at American University in Washington; Niketha McKenzie, School Librarian at the Thurgood Marshall Academy, a public charter high school in Washington, DC; and Roshin Mathew, a master’s student at University of Maryland’s iSchool and a teacher of information literacy to older adults through the public library as well as undergraduates at UM’s Freshman Writing Program.
