Community Anchors - National Forum

Through a National Forum grant, Simmons College will organize a symposium comprised of panels, workshops, and brainstorming sessions for up to 70 stakeholders on the role of library and allied institutions as community anchors for information access and literacy. The forum will focus on how libraries can serve as hubs for professionals across disciplines to promote information literacy. Working with related professionals, such as journalists, social media experts and educators, participants will produce a white paper, curricula to develop information literacy, a research agenda, and recommendations for LIS programs and associations that prepare librarians to implement information literacy programs.
