An Interview with Info Literacy Expert Sharon Weiner from Purdue University

Place this post in you good to see and read file.

At the beginning of October we posted that it's Information Literacy Month. Our post included some words about info literacy by President Obama. It includes a mention of libraries.

Today, a Q&A interview with Sharon Weiner, the W. Wayne Booker Endowed Chair in Information Literacy for Purdue Libraries and the vice president of the National Forum on Information Literacy.

Questions include:

+ What is Information Literacy?

+ What sector would you say lacks the most literacy, or is less publicized?

+ What can a reference librarian do that I can't do on Google?

+ And Several Others
