Information Literacy Versus Information Technology Skills
Information technology skills are those needed to manipulate files and data using a computer. They consist of the following types of skills:
- Basic computer skills
- Computer literacy
- Technology competencies
Information literacy is the set of skills required to find, evaluate, and use information.
- Information literacy skills are applicable to both online information sources, which require the use of a computer, and paper information sources, such as books and periodicals.
- An information-literate person has computer skills, but a computer-literate person is not necessarily information-literate (Information Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education, ACRL, 11 May, 2010, http://www.ala.org/ala/mgrps/divs/acrl/standards/informationliteracycompetency.cfm)
