    What is Information Literacy?

    Information Literacy is a set of attributes which individuals need in today's information-oriented society. Learning from information resources has always been at the heart of any course of study. However, increased access to computers and to information from a variety of sources, and in a variety of formats, highlights the need for information skills in everyday life, and lifelong learning as well as in formal education.

    Information Literacy is identifying when and why you need information; understanding how it is organised and identifying the best sources; then critically evaluating, using and sharing it in an ethical manner.
