Biography Resource Center will make you fitter, happier, more productive — just ask the President

Though we may know how to find the information we need, we must also know how to evaluate it. Over the past decade, we have seen a crisis of authenticity emerge. We now live in a world where anyone can publish an opinion or perspective, whether true or not, and have that opinion amplified within the information marketplace. At the same time, Americans have unprecedented access to the diverse and independent sources of information, as well as institutions such as libraries and universities, that can help separate truth from fiction and signal from noise.

And it was proclaimed thusly: October 2009 is officially the United States’ first National Information Literacy Awareness Month. Celebrate by doing a search in Biography Resource Center today! (We have six narrative and three brief biographies on President Obama — and five more on Captain Kangaroo/Bob Keeshan, currently our Spotlighted individual.)
