Why information literacy

Why information literacy?

The overarching goal of k-20 education is simple – to produce independent, self sufficient lifelong learners who can successfully navigate the competitive challenges of post secondary educational and/or workplace opportunities (NFIL, 2014).


What is informational literacy

What is informational literacy?

(NFIL, 2014)


What is information literacy

What is information literacy?

Information Literacy is the set of skills needed to find, retrieve, analyze, and use information (ACRL, 2014).

  • Determine the extent of information needed

  • Access the needed information effectively and efficiently

  • Evaluate information and its sources critically

  • Incorporate selected information into one’s knowledge base

  • Use information effectively to accomplish a specific purpose

  • Understand the economic, legal, and social issues surrounding the use of information, and access and use information ethically and legally


The citation project

The Citation Project

Writers have four means by which they can incorporate source content into their text: they can quote, summarize, paraphrase, or patchwrite that content. Contemporary educational and media discourse has been focused on whether writers acknowledge their sources when they incorporate material from them. A more profound question is how writers incorporate source material; quotation, summary, paraphrase, and patchwriting are separate discursive moves representing different levels of intellectual engagement with the source (The Citation Project, 2014).


Project information literacy

Project Information Literacy

  • Project Information Literacy (PIL) is a large-scale, national study about early adults and their research habits.

  • How do first year college students make the critical information transition from high school to college?


The lilac project

The LILAC Project

  • The LILAC Project is a multi-institutional study of the information-seeking behaviors of students from a variety of levels and institution types.

  • Hypothesis: While students are receiving instruction in information literacy skills, including instruction in locating, evaluating, using, and citing information sources, much of this learning does not carry over with them beyond the confines of the specific assignment or classroom.
