ILART > Events
The Rhode Island Library Association’s Information Literacy Action Round Table (ILART) hosted a virtual event to celebrate October is Information Literacy Month on Wednesday, October 21 from 4 - 5 pm. Slides are available here.
We invite librarians of all types to explore the new Rhode Island School Library Curriculum Guide. This resource includes essential, equitable and relevant learning standards for student success as well as lesson ideas and assessments by standard and grade level. The guide was developed with the goal of strengthening school library curriculum and programs statewide, but public librarians serving youth in partnership with school librarians, academic librarians who build on the information literacy skills students acquire in K12, and librarians from other settings who support information literacy skills of their patrons will find it useful. Session participants will learn how and why the guide was developed, what it entails, and how it was piloted in schools. Join us to learn what happens next and how the Curriculum Guide will help you as a Librarian, whether you work in a school, academic, public or special library.
Our virtual guides were Mary Moen, Assistant Professor and Coordinator of the School Library Media Program at the Graduate School of Library and Information Studies at the University of Rhode Island, and Marianne Mirando, Library and Information Specialist at Westerly High School.
