Let’s talk about Project Information Literacy: Reading in an Age of Distrust

If you haven’t already seen Alison Head’s essay “Reading in an Age of Distrust” (part of Project
information Literacy’s Provocation series) you’ll want to read it soon, so you can discuss it with us.

The ability to read analytically and deeply should be one of the most important takeaways from college. But are educators equipping students with the skills they need for today?” How can community college librarians contribute to a culture of critical reading in our institutions and beyond? Please comment with your initial thoughts and we’ll be back with some discussion questions soon.
