Eye to I: Visual Literacy
Meets Information Literacy


Welcome to the home of the virtual poster sessions that are being offered in conjunction with the ACRL Instruction Section/Arts Section program at ALA 2007 in Washington D.C. entitled Eye to I: Visual Literacy Meets Information Literacy. The poster sessions will be available through this site through December, 2007. Please use the links at the right to view the poster sessions that illustrate practical applications of the intersection of visual literacy and information literacy. We hope you will also plan to attend the program at ALA in June!

Program Description:

This program will explore the connections between visual literacy and information literacy. Examples of textual, visual, and hybrid resources will be examined in light of the standards developed for both literacies in order to discover the intersections between the two and ways to teach in an environment where both words and images convey important meanings. Attendees will have the opportunity to develop learning outcomes, rubrics, and pedagogical methods for effectively teaching these multiple literacies.

  1. Hi there, normally I never comment on public blogs however now I’m afraid I have to do it. Last week I took the decision to install the newest version of the Safari Internet browser and this site doesn’t display properly ever since. Right now your sidebar overlaps part of the text and I am unable see it. I had the exact same issue with my herbal incense reviews Internet site and I was able to resolve it by changing the HTML code. Can you fix it? Thank you! Please excuse my poor English, it’s obviously not my mother language. I’m from Italy 🙂
