In 2017, the Jay Information Literacy Scholarship was established by a mother and daughter team, two former educators and school librarians: Hilda Jay '45 and Ellen Jay '85, '86. Both Hilda and Ellen taught in public schools and universities, wrote books on information literacy, and encouraged the teaching of critical thinking skills. The Jay Information Literacy Scholarship is given each year to a student working in the Teaching and Learning Commons of the IU Libraries with the intent of furthering information literacy instruction.
