Milner receives $58,000 information literacy grant

The Milner Library of Illinois State University has received a $58,000 grant from the Illinois Secretary of State's office to study the effectiveness of a center for information literacy. Details on this are at Milner receives $58,000 information literacy grant from the Daily Vidette.

Associate Dean Dane Ward noted, ""Information literacy is something that people use everyday. Most students should be familiar with library sessions, these are activities in increasing information literacy. Even for decisions like which movie to see, we have to evaluate the information we are given to make the best decision."

I remember Dane Ward from ACRL Immersion several years ago. Nice job Dane!
