Critical information literacy. (Day 74/100)

At the CU Libraries Instruction Unconference, I attended a session about practical critical information literacy.

In conversation with my husband. (Day 43/100)

I've been doing a lot of reading. Several times a week, I check my mailbox and find a small package from a publisher, containing a book to be read in consideration for the Stonewall Book Award.

(Yes, we do like to mix our gin with… Continue reading 100 information literacy articles in 100 days.

Things I was not looking forward to included: crowds, long lines for the bathroom, awkward exhibit hall… Continue reading Tell me it’s more than a t-shirt.
