SCL Conference 2016

ABSTRACT:

Our students have access to an overwhelming amount of information, and whether it is communicated in cuneiform or hypertext, the skills required to understand and apply the information remain the same. We must teach our students to locate, evaluate, and effectively use this information in an ethical manner with wisdom, discernment, and savvy. Librarians play a key role in this process.
