What is Information Literacy?

The Association of College and Research Libraries defines information literacy as the set of skills needed to find, retrieve, analyze, and use information (Introduction to Information Literacy. ACRL. 11 May, 2010 http://www.ala.org/ala/mgrps/divs/acrl/issues/infolit/overview/intro/index.cfm). In addition, the information-literate person uses information legally and ethically.

"Ultimately, information literate people are those who have learned how to learn. They know how to learn because they know how knowledge is organized, how to find information and how to use information in such a way that others can learn from them. They are people prepared for lifelong learning, because they can always find the information needed for any task or decision at hand." (American Library Association Presidential Committee on Information Literacy. 10 Jan. 1989, as cited in Introduction to Information Literacy. ACRL. 11 May, 2010 http://www.ala.org/ala/mgrps/divs/acrl/issues/infolit/overview/intro/index.cfm)
