Celebrating Media Literacy Week – #MedLitWk

Media Literacy is the ability to access, analyze, evaluate, communicate and create using all forms of communication. The mission of Media Literacy Week is to highlight the power of media literacy education and its essential role in education today.


2nd Annual US Media Literacy Week November 6-10, 2017 #MediaLitWk

The official theme of Media Literacy Week 2017 is “Inclusion in a Connected World: A Place and a Voice for Everyone.” The FNU Library Staff always wants to advocate and promote our various formats of Media Resources and the beloved Digital Spaces.

These days, both Information Literacy and Digital Literacy are unseparated. Students have the ability to be connected 24/7 at anytime and at any place to the eResources at Library and Information Resources Network (LIRN), Florida Electronic Library, and World Digital Library.
