Information Literacy Partner of the Month

April/May 2015

Congratulations to Dr. Mark de Socio, Associate Professor of Geography and Geosciences, who is the SU Libraries’ Information Literacy Partner of the Month for April/May. Susan Brazer nominated him, noting:

Mark has started working with me to incorporate information literacy skills with his economic geography (GEOG 235) students, so that they develop a multitude of skills that will help them both in economics and geography. He has created an in-depth research project that requires them to pull together a variety of sources and create a company profile that analyzes the company in question on a number of levels. This is an exceptionally good project for a class at the 200-level and it will serve the students well as a fantastic foundation for advanced research skill-building in the future.

It is for this willingness to creatively work with librarians to help his students develop a strong foundation of research skills that we have chosen Dr. Mark de Socio as the SU Libraries’ Information Literacy Partner of the Month for April/May.

In addition to recognizing Dr. de Socio on the SU Libraries’ website and social media, we also will purchase a book in his field of study to be added to the Libraries’ collection in his honor.
