The Association of College & Research Libraries (ACRL) defines information literacy as "[t]he set of skills needed to find, retrieve, analyze, and use information." It includes the abilities to formulate guiding questions, develop search strategies to find relevant and accurate information, access the information, use it effectively, and much more. More broadly, information literacy requires understanding the ethical and legal questions pertaining to information creation and use.
This guide Includes resources on information literacy from ACRL, the Information Literacy Course, and Plough Library's eBook collection. You also will find resources devoted to navigating social media platforms and other information sources on the internet.
