What is Information Literacy

Information literacy is the ability to:

...identify when and why you need information.

...understand where to go to look for the information you need.

...understand how to evaluate the quality of the information you find.

...use the information you find effectively.

...understand how to use the information found in an ethical manner.

This guide will walk you through each of these steps.
