Global Media and Information Literacy Week Roundup

Today marks the end of Global Media and Information Literacy Week 2017. The theme for this year’s event was Media and Information Literacy in Critical Times: Re-imagining Ways of Learning and Information Environments. Throughout the week Facet participated by sharing ‘look inside’ previews from our information literacy books, guest blog posts and video posts from our authors. We have gathered all of those resources together in one handy reference post below.
