Information Literacy

Introduction

According to the American Library Association (ALA, 1989), information literacy is a set of abilities requiring individuals to "recognize when information is needed and have the ability to locate, evaluate, and use [that information] effectively" (para. 3). Academic success, professional development, and even good citizenship have always been founded on the use of these literacy skills -- but they are critical to survival in the 21st century.
