Local Information Literacy news

Some librarians are good at getting stories and press releases into their local news sites. Firstly, a small guest column about information literacy in a local US newspaper, which includes a reminder that President Obama designated October Information Literacy month:
- VCAL/VSLA/VLA Information Literacy Working Group. (2016, November 3). Guest Column: Vt. [Vermont] librarians speak up about information literacy. Williston Observer. http://www.willistonobserver.com/guest-column-vt-librarians-speak-up-about-information-literacy/
IL month is also celebrated in this local US news story, which summarises the events and awards a college had organised:
- e-news Park Forest. (2016, October 28). 3rd Annual Information Literacy Month Closing Event Held at South Suburban College. e-news Park Forest. http://enewspf.com/2016/10/28/3rd-annual-information-literacy-month-held-south-suburban-college/
Finally, from Ireland, Dundalk Institute of Technology announced the winners of its Bi-annual Information Literacy Awards:
