The SUNYLA Membership has voted in favor of the bylaw change to rename the Working Group for Information Literacy (WGIL) to the SUNYLA Information Literacy Committee (SILC)!
Along with the name change came a revision to SILC’s charge, which was updated to provide future committee members with greater flexibility in the projects and activities they pursue.
The SUNYLA Information Literacy Committee (SILC) shall:
- Investigate system-wide initiatives relating to information literacy and offer recommendations for SUNY librarians to become involved.
- Provide a forum for reflecting on concerns or interests relating to teaching practices and/or instruction programs.
- Recommend and/or sponsor educational opportunities relating to information literacy for the SUNYLA community.
SILC has several exciting projects upcoming for the 2020-2021 academic year, stay tuned! You may submit any questions to Brandon West, Chair of SILC at westb[at]geneseo.edu.
