Request For Information (RFI): IMLS Requests Input on “Information Literacy Programs, Resources, and Promising Practices”
The Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) request for information (RFI) linked below will be formally published in the Federal Register on July 25, 2023.
From the RFI:
IMLS seeks to understand how organizations address and incorporate information literacy skills into local community programs broadly; how information literacy– related resources and programs are applied to specific areas of community concern, including but not limited to community health, safety, and economic well-being; as well as how these resources and programs are adapted and developed to address local demographics, unique community characteristics, and the continually evolving information environment.
IMLS also seeks to identify information literacy–related resources and programs that could inform the development of a website to disseminate successful practices on information literacy programs and related tools. IMLS invites input from stakeholders, experts, communities, and members of the public, including but not limited to libraries, archives, museums, researchers in academia, industry, government library and museum advocacy organizations, nongovernmental and professional organizations, and Federal agencies. A response to every topic or question is not required.
