Symposium on Transformational Literacy: life stages and libraries, museums and archives

Every day, libraries help people transform their lives. But nowhere is that role more apparent-and important-as when people move from one life stage to another. Join us for a discussion on the need for information and preparation during these vital "between" stages. Whether the move is from high school to college, adult to parent, during a job transition, retirement or any other important life change, the need for information support and literacy is more acute at these times than at any other in our users' lives. The following individuals presented on this topic. Presentations are linked below.

  • Panelist: David Pantalony,

    Curator of Physical Sciences and Medicine, Canada Science and Technology Museum; Adjunct Professor, Department of History, University of Ottawa [PDF, 13 slides]
