PA Forward: Information Literacy

The Learning Commons is a proud participant in the Pennsylvania Library Association's PA Forward initiative. Learn more about that initiative on this guide.

Information Literacy

Information literacy is the ability to recognize when information is needed and then find and use that information effectively.

PaLA mission: "We envision a Pennsylvania where citizens know how to use online resources and current technology to improve their education, to enhance their job skills, and to fully participate in a digital society."

Research Party

English faculty and Learning Commons staff will be available to work with you and your classmates on things like research, citations, and writing.  No need to sign-up.  Just stop by with your assignment and join the festivities.  If you have your own computer, it is recommended that you bring it along too.

Research parties are scheduled periodically throughout the semester. Check our Library News Guide, your email, and Blackboard announcements for information on upcoming parties.
