Many departments on campus are partnering with the library to make READ posters. These posters, conceived in 1985 by the American Library Association, promote the value and excitement of reading and other forms of literacy. Celebrity authors and media personalities are featured. At IU East, we’re featuring our own stars – staff and faculty who posed with their favorite books, sharing a variety of interests!
The Campus Library staff have diverse interests and expertise, and are eager to assist you. Information literacy is the ability to evaluate and apply information to your needs. Critical thinking skills enable you to analyze and problem-solve any situation. Media literacy helps you understand when you’re being manipulated, and also helps you identify when you’re being presented with fake news, so you know when you’re being misled or even outright lied to. Financial literacy helps you be fiscally secure and independent. Teaching these things are among our highest principles.
Research helps in learning all of these, and the linked pages and libguides are a great place to start. But you’re not alone. Look at all the faces on these READ posters. All of these people are committed to helping you be the best student you can be, to learn the most that you can, and to find success in life. Just like all the celebrities in ALA READ posters are dedicated to encouraging reading, we’re here to encourage and sustain you on your collegiate journey.
