What is Information Literacy?

Information literacy is the set of skills needed to find, retrieve, analyze, and use information.

Why is it important?

Information literacy gives us the skills to know when we need information and where to locate it effectively and efficiently. It includes the technological skills needed to use the modern library as a gateway to information. It enables us to analyze and evaluate the information we find, thus giving us confidence in using that information to make a decision or create a product.
