What is Information Literacy?

The American Library Association states, "Information literacy is a set of abilities requiring individuals to 'recognize when information is needed and have the ability to locate, evaluate, and use effectively the needed information.'"

Common Sense Media defines information literacy as "the ability to identify, find, evaluate, and use information effectively." Aspects of Information Literacy include: digital literacy and media literacy. 

The Partnership for 21st Century Learning identifies four main components to information literacy:

  • Access information efficiently and effectively
  • Evaluate information critically and competently
  • Use information accurately and creatively
  • Manage the flow of information from a wide variety of sources, and apply a fundamental understanding of the ethical/legal issues surrounding the access and use of information.
