Diverse Literacies: PA Forward as a Framework for Academic Outreach
PA Forward initiative is responsible for leveraging
libraries’ and librarians’ expertise in what the initiative describes as 5
different literacies: Basic, Information, Health, Financial, and Civic/Social.
While these literacies have been used with great success in many school and
public libraries, we know that many academic librarians have used these
literacies for successful outreach programs to their "communities” (faculty,
staff and students), especially creating programs in conjunction with faculty
This Connect and Communicate discussion will be about how academic
librarians can leverage the PA Forward literacies to create practical ideas and
outreach opportunities at the campus level.
