Isaac Asimov quipped, "There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge."

Come interact with Librarian Dr. David Cox as we discuss the concept of Information literacy in a world dominated by data immediacy. How do we create authority based on knowledge -- something essential in academics and science -- within a world dominated by the deification of personal opinion?

Noon in the Tripp Room of the Skeen Library (room 212) A light lunch will be provided.
