Hi All, I realize that this may not be the best time to ask a question on
the listserv since many academic librarians are on break (oh, how I miss the
academic life - being a mere public library director...) but here goes. I
was wondering if anyone could recommend a person who was a good
speaker/presenter on the topic of information literacy (combining philosophy
with practical on-the-desk aplications, skills and techniques). As video
librarians, we know about visual literacy and fight the good fight daily
concerning visual information being as valuable as print. Information
literacy is basically just taking the old adage "finding the right book for
the right person at the right time" and replacing "book" with the term
"information." If you could include name and a contact piece of
information (tel. # or e-mail) and perhaps one sentence about them to help
me discern one from another, I'd appreciate it. Purpose: Spring 2005
iinformation literacy all-day forum main presenter for SDLA (South Dakota
Library Association). This lucky person would "win" a fantastic,
all-expense paid trip to Chamberlain, SD (the Missouri River mecca!) +
speaking stipend. Thanks so much for your help and Merry Christmas.

Like Tiny Tim said "God Bless thee, every one.."
