Information Literacy is the set of skills needed to find, retrieve, analyze, and use information. Information literacy forms the basis for lifelong learning. It is common to all disciplines, all learning environments, and to all levels of education. The information literate person is able to recognize when information is needed, and, in an ethical manner, has the ability to locate, manage, evaluate, and use information for research, decision-making, and continued professional development.
