Educational Resources: Smithsonian Libraries and Archives Introduces Information Literacy Collections Available Online
Smithsonian Libraries and Archives wants to help you gain a better understanding of information literacy and further your skills in this crucial area. In an age where there are myriad sources of information, unending news coverage, and a vast, often unregulated digital world, how can you tell which sources to trust for reliable information? We’ve just launched a series of interactive, online collections on Smithsonian Learning Lab that are dedicated to helping users think critically about how they identify, find, evaluate, and use information effectively.
These initial information literacy collections will help you think about what it is that makes a trusted source. Over the coming weeks, keep an eye out for new collections that will delve into other critical information literacy skills.
