What is Information Literacy?

In the classroom, workplace, or everyday life, the ability to locate and evaluate information for context, credibility, and accuracy is a 21st century success and survival skill.

 

Information Literacy is the ability to think critically about information; to recognize when information is needed and have the skills to locate, evaluate and effectively use it.
