About This Virtual Display

On October 1, 2009, President Barack Obama proclaimed October as National Information Literacy Awareness Month.

President Obama called for Americans to ".. be adept in the skills necessary to effectively navigate the Information Age. Though we may know how to find the information we need, we must also know how to evaluate it."

-- President Barack Obama - October 1, 2009 - Presidential Proclamation 8429
