Indiana Information Literacy Week Proclaimed by Governor Daniels
Posted by Heather on September 26, 2012
Whereas, information literacy provides the knowledge and skills to find, evaluate and use credible information from all sources in our constantly evolving world; and
Whereas, these skills are fundamental in strengthening our local and state economic development and prosperity in order to be an informed and educated citizenry; and
Whereas, information literacy is a key component in providing an education to all students in our state from preventative healthcare to employment placement by utilizing this constantly changing technology to navigate and evaluate our expanding information environment; and
Whereas, we remind all Hoosiers of the benefits information literacy makes available socially, economically and culturally for the State of Indiana from the rich resources of librarians and INSPIRE.in.gov;
Now, therefore, I, Mitchell E. Daniels, Jr., Governor of the State of Indiana, do hereby proclaim the first week of October, 2012 as Indiana Information Literacy Week in the State of Indiana, and invite all citizens to duly note this occasion.
