National Information Literacy Awareness Month

In recognition of the 20th anniversary of the National Forum on Information Literacy, President Obama issued a proclamation declaring October 2009 as National Information Literacy Awareness Month. The proclamation states:

This month, we dedicate ourselves to increasing information literacy so that all citizens understand its vital importance. An informed and educated citizenry is essential to the functioning of our modern democratic society, and I encourage educational and community institutions across the country to help Americans find and evaluate the information they seek, in all its forms.

The full proclamation is available on the White House website.
