Computers in Libraries - Collecting Proposals for the 25th Annual Conference
We are currently accepting presentations for the 25th annual Computers in Libraries conference, which will again be held in Arlington, Va., April 12-14, 2010.
Submit your speaking proposal today!
The deadline for submissions is Sept. 15, so act now!
This year's conference theme is Information Fluency: Literacy for Life.
Information fluency goes beyond literacy (the ability to read and write), information literacy (the ability to find, evaluate and use information), media literacy (the ability to access, analyze, evaluate, and create messages in a variety of forms), and digital literacy (the ability to use digital technology, communication tools or networks to locate, evaluate, use and create information). It extends to other types of literacy necessary to grow, learn and live – cultural literacy, global literacy, news literacy, scientific literacy, economic literacy, social literacy, health literacy, multimedia literacy, computer literacy, social online literacy, and more. Information, and fluency with it, permeates every part of our lives. Developing skills to become fluent with information is the key to our success individually as well as in groups, teams and communities.
