What is Information Literacy?
Information Literacy is the ability to find, retrieve, analyze, and use information. Being able to search for relevant information, analyze the information, and use it effectively in a paper or project will likely lead to more success in the classroom. Also, most employers are desperate to hire people who have technology skills, excellent writing ability, and the ability to analyze information and present it in an effective way. Being more information literate makes you a more successful student and could give you a leg up on the competition.

What are Information Literacy Modules?
Information Literacy Modules are short, to-the-point, tutorials to help you learn to find, evaluate and use information.
New modules are added annually. The current modules are listed on the Modules page.
