As a library devoted to the importance of information literacy, we are saddened to hear of the passing of Dr. Woody Horton, an influential figure in information literacy and library information services. Dr. Horton worked as a programmer on one of IBM’s earliest computers before becoming a diplomat. Later, he would enter the academic field, teaching and writing hundreds of articles about information literacy. He also co-founded the National Forum on Information Literacy.
