Information Literacy gets a logo!
I've just heard from Sheila Webber that the winner of the information literacy logo contest was announced yesterday, at the UNESCO session of the IFLA World Library and Information conference. The winner was from young Cuban designer Edgar Luy Perez, based in Havana. Here is more information about the logo and the designer.
The logo could become regognised internationally, as more people use it. It can be downloaded in various formats.
The contest was supported by UNESCO and IFLA (International Federation of
Library Associations and Institutions) and masterminded by Jesus Lau. There
were 198 different logos submitted by 139 participants from 36 countries, with
11 judges representing different regions of the world.
Let's hope that this helps to get the message across that IL is really important in the 21st century!
