Nationally, there is growing awareness of the need to educate young adults in news literacy, the ability to think critically about print, broadcast, and online news. The News Literacy Project sponsors outcomes-based research in best practices; however, few libraries have news literacy programs and the topic remains under represented in our professional literature. This program features an invited speaker involved in news literacy research, followed by librarian-led lightning talks on successful news literacy instructional programs.
