Building the Center for Information Literacy at Illiniois State University: ISU-based center to help librarians train info consumers
From the article: "Teaching people to find, evaluate and use information effectively has always been part of a librarian's job..." Just had to repeat that point.

Some of the goals listed for the new center:
"-- Establish a Web site, or virtual clearinghouse, about the subject and its latest trends.

-- Organize regional summits on the topic of teaching information literacy. Summits would be conducted throughout the state, but also be accessible through Web technology.

-- Create outreach groups for different librarian communities, such as school librarians, and others working in public library environments."
