Why Students Need Librarians to Get Involved.
Adi Redzic, co-founder and executive director of the iOme Challenge (www.iomechallenge.org), will make a case for why young people need librarians and other library professionals to get involved in facilitating greater financial literacy in our communities. Adi will introduce iOme’s various programs, including the data collected through iOme’s annual Measure of Millennials. Attendees will also receive resources that they can utilize in their individual work. This forum will serve as an introduction to the topic of financial literacy and academic libraries, which will be the theme of the ACRL President’s Program at the 2014 ALA Annual Conference in Las Vegas.
Saturday, January 25, 2014, 10:30 – 11:30am, Room TBA.
