Welcome to The Informed Consumer

Penn State University Libraries presents “The Informed Consumer” an initiative designed to help prepare Penn State students for making educated decisions as they transition into their professional life. The resources and insight presented are specifically dedicated to developing necessary life skills that are not taught in the classroom. Librarians and student interns are coming together to provide open education resources through the Penn State Libraries to assist students in a variety of essential topics needed now and post-graduation.

Topics include:

  • Personal finance
  • Information literacy
  • Health literacy
  • Student engagement
  • Entrepreneurship
  • Miscellaneous tips for success in everyday life

In The Know: Your Money Your Life is a blog that carries out The Informed Consumer’s purpose: to educate students and provide them with credible resources on life-skill topics not readily taught at Penn State. Check out our posts to be more prepared to take your money and your life into your own hands. Adulting is hard and we’re here to help. We want you to be informed consumers, so make sure you’re in the know.
