Why is information literacy important for technical writers? | RightMix Technologies | My Elementary LIbrary | Scoop.it

Information literacy is the ability to understand the problem (we are trying to solve) and succinctly define the information need. It also includes the ability to identify the potential sources of information, and the ability to separate useful information from the data smog and the ability to synthesize the information that we find to solve the problem.

Flip This Library: School Libraries Need a Revolution

Flip This Library: School Libraries Need a Revolution | My Elementary LIbrary | Scoop.it

Week after week he took another book from the section until there were no more left for him to choose. Today, dinosaurs are still very popular in the elementary or middle school library. Here are some resources to get you started...
