Becky very considerately collated the responses and posted them to the list – it goes something like this:
You know you’re information literate when:
- You have at least 2 active library cards.
- You often find yourself gleefully suggesting, “This calls for immediate research!”
- Your motto is “Think before you google.”
- You think not crediting a source is worse than not recycling.
- You hear the Cheers theme when approaching the reference desk. (Subsequent highly scientific research has indicated that it would be better to use the Friends theme instead.)
- The library website is your homepage.
- You can easily name your 3 favorite databases.
- You narrow searches with the ease and precision of a ninja.
- You believe most books are only as good as their references.
- When visiting libraries you can find and check out books in 5 minutes or less.
- You spot irrelevant search results immediately because you just can’t stand them.
- You tested out of Defense Against the Dark Arts by flexing your superior critical thinking skills.
- You could easily defeat Chuck Norris using Library of Congress subject headings.
