Posted in Research News

October 23, 2018 – U.S. Librarian of Congress Carla Hayden asked Georgetown faculty to help expand information literacy during this year’s Fall Faculty Convocation, which also celebrated the promotions of more than 30 professors across the Main Campus, Law Center, and Medical Center.

“The first thing that comes up in a computer search might not be the most accurate and authoritative source,” Hayden said during the Oct. 16 ceremony. “Information literacy is something that needs to start as soon as a young person can connect with a device.”

Hayden, the first woman and African American to hold the post, delivered the Aims of Education address at the convocation.
