What is information literacy?
Information literacy is the set of knowledge, skills and abilities that enables students to identify and articulate their information needs, and to effectively locate, evaluate and integrate information in order to fulfill their needs in an academically responsible way.
How does information literacy instruction benefit my students?
Information-literate students are equipped with the knowledge and ability to identify and locate quality information that will help them succeed in all their research assignments and gain confidence in their own abilities to excel. This knowledge, ability and confidence forms a solid foundation on which to build an exciting and productive future of lifelong learning.
