I’ve been researching workplace information literacy in preparation for our presentation at the fall 2017 NSLA Conference. Here are a few articles of note:

I also just completed my 40 day writing course, yay me! Throughout the process, I have started writing a story that seems to compel me to write it. It was prompted by an Eaton’s label I found under the wallpaper in the century home we just bought (to retire in). I was able to trace the name on the paper using the online census of Canada and have been able to find the owners of the house in the 1871 Census!
