If you are a student or teacher at any educational level, you will have heard the phrase “Information Literacy.” What is it? How can you use it to enhance learning or improve your life? According to The American Library Association's Presidential Committee on Information Literacy:
To be information literate, a person must be able to recognize when information is needed and have the ability to locate, evaluate, and use effectively the needed information…..Ultimately, information literate people are those who have learned how to learn. They know how to learn because they know how knowledge is organized, how to find information, and how to use information in such a way that others can learn from them.
