What is Information Literacy?

Information Literacy is a set of abilities associated with accessing, retrieving, and ethically using information. Being able to search for relevant information, evaluate sources, and cite information effectively in a paper or project is important for course work.  Also, employers are interested in hiring individuals with information and technology skills who have the ability to evaluate the reliability of information and present it in an effective way. Being information literate can help you be successful in the classroom and in the workplace.
