Are you Information Literate?

Information literacy is the foundation for learning.  It is important in the classroom and beyond.  Performing research for a paper or class project requires information literacy skills, but these skills are also useful when buying a new car, deciding which candidate to vote for, and applying for a job. 

According to the ACRL, an information literate person is able to:

  • Determine the extent of information needed
  • Access the needed information effectively and efficiently
  • Evaluate information and its sources critically
  • Incorporate selected information into one’s knowledge base
  • Use information effectively to accomplish a specific purpose
  • Understand the economic, legal, and social issues surrounding the use of information, and access and use information ethically and legally
