On May 25, 12:00 – 1:30, the library is hosting a webinar entitled “Integrating Information Literacy into First-Year Seminars.” The presenting group describes the webinar as an opportunity to hear how California State University, Bakersfield, integrated information literacy modules into general education classes.

Please join your colleagues in the library’s main computer lab (1st floor). Feel free to bring a brown bag lunch; drinks and dessert will be provided.

For additional information, contact Dr. Ron Wirtz at x8592 or wirtzrl@unk.edu.

“Information literacy is a set of abilities requiring individuals to recognize when information is needed and have the ability to locate, evaluate, and use effectively the needed information….Information literacy forms the basis for lifelong learning.”
