You may have seen the following announcement on libs-or and deleted it thinking 'Oh, this is just for school and academic librarians', but it's not! The Oregon Information Literacy Summit is for staff at all types of libraries who help youth develop information literacy skills.

While most of the activities at the Oregon Information Literacy Summit will be informative because you work with youth and support their information literacy development, there are a couple of presentation that may be particularly useful to public library youth services staff like yourself. They are:

"Kids, Information Literacy and the Public Library"
What does information literacy for students look like at the public library? Multnomah County Library youth services librarians have successfully partnered with county schools to increase the information literacy of K-12 students. The library's upgraded Homework Center website utilizes blog posts highlighting resources on common curriculum topics as well as information literacy videos created by local teens. The library's School Corps outreach program has created several programs at the request of educators, including ones on library resources, Internet safety, and online searching for text and images.

"IL for All: Using Pinterest and other social media to expand learners' understanding of information literacy for active engagement in creative assignments."

This presentation will show how Pinterest, Facebook, and other social media sites can be effectively used for active student engagement in classes, for research and for assignments. We will look at ways to use Pinterest in the research process, such as searching Library and public Pinterest boards as databases and sources of information, and using individual and class Pinterest boards to share findings as a research log. Individual and class Pinterest boards can also become a final product. As active learners ourselves, we will share ways to add engaged value to classes.
