S.U.R.E. campaign to promote the importance of information searching and discernment


#1
  • The S.U.R.E. campaign is an initiative by the National Library Board to promote the importance of information searching and discernment.
  • The nation-wide campaign was launched in 2013, and Singapore is the first country outside of the United States to promote Information Literacy (IL) on a national scale for the general public.

S.U.R.E. distills key Information Literacy (IL) concepts into 4 simple ways:

  • Source: Look as its origins. Is it trustworthy?
  • Understand: Know what you‚Äôre reading. Search for clarity.
  • Research: Dig deeper. Go beyond the initial source.
  • Evaluate: Find the balance. Exercise fair judgement.
