Information and Society: Moving Beyond Basic Information Literacy to Responsible Digital Citizenship
At a time when the spread of misinformation, “fake news”, propaganda, and misleading sensationalism is prevalent and more powerfully disseminated than ever, it is important that students are able to properly navigate and analyze information and its sources. Together we developed an upper-division information literacy course on information analysis and evaluation. In this session we share the course proposal process, course design, and tips on how to work collaboratively for curricular change.

In Libraries We Trust: The Role of Libraries in the 2020 Census
Many projections and estimates used in funding allocations and general planning are based on the census. Therefore, it is critical to have a complete count of all Utahns. With this poster, librarians will learn that the Census is mandated in the US Constitution; why a complete count is so important for libraries; timeline; hot topics; population trends; how the State Data Center can help libraries; and what libraries can do to help get a complete count in their communities.

Libraries in Sustainable Communities: The UN Sustainable Development Goals as a Framework for Change
Libraries are key institutions for achieving the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), a framework for organizational change to create strong, resilient communities. Libraries are familiar, trusted organizations with a mission that supports economic opportunity, equality, civic engagement, education and health.  Rather than creating new, unproven infrastructure, existing library systems can align programming and services to transform lives and connect with community partners.

In Libraries We Trust: The Role of Libraries in the 2020 Census
Many projections and estimates used in planning are based on the census. Similarly, many funding allocations are based on population counts, like the LSTA funds used in Utah. It is critical to have a complete count of all Utahns. Libraries can offer trustworthy information about the census and provide vital services to residents, especially to hard-to-count populations. Join us as we learn about dependable sources of information and how to be more effective census ambassadors to our communities.
