Information literacy is the set of skills students need to find, retrieve, analyze, and use information. Information literacy is a vital skill for our students in an age of information overload. These skills are necessary not just during college but also after graduation in information-seeking activities related to a variety of careers.
The Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL) has a great introduction to information literacy. The link can be found below.
