Librarians as Teachers

Why I think librarians should teach information literacy:

Teaching is important. Though there are benefits to self discovery, we must all gain a base knowledge before attempting to navigate the world. Librarians as teachers can help students find their rudder in the unending sea of information. Teaching is essential because a person who knows how to use the Library and evaluate the information in the world around them, will be the one who can find direction in chaos and who will realize the true importance of the Library. Librarians teach others to need us more by needing us less.
