What is information literacy?

Information Literacy


Information literacy refers to the set of skills that makes it possible for an individual to identify the need for information, as well as to search for it, analyze and evaluate it, incorporate it into another work or into one's personal knowledge base, and understand the socio-economic context of it. 

These sets of skills are explained in greater detail at the American Library Association Association of College and Research Libraries website.
