Presentation Description

In March of this year, Facebook outpaced Google to become the most visited website in the U.S., solidifying the centrality of social media in our students’ lives. In this presentation, an English professor and university librarian will illustrate how users on social media websites like Facebook are practicing traditional information literacy skills while developing new ones. The presenters will speculate the implications of these evolving user behaviors and attitudes for the Information Literacy Standards.
