Information literacy forms the basis for lifelong learning. It is common to all disciplines, to all learning environments, and to all levels of education. It enables learners to master content and extend their investigations, become more self-directed, and assume greater control over their own learning. An information literate individual is able to:
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

Information Literacy Tutorials
Librarians at North Carolina State University Libraries have created “Big Picture” videos that address common conceptual problems in information literacy. Rather than teach “how to do X,” these videos focus on core concepts, fundamental to information literacy. The videos transcend institutional specifics of how to search within a given library, and can be reused or adapted to fit specific institutional needs. Videos are published under a Creative Commons license.
Library Instruction for Classes
The Johnson College Library offers library instruction to help prepare students to become confident researchers and critical thinkers who contribute to thriving communities of practice through the lifelong cultivation of information literacy. We collaborate with faculty to provide customized, course-specific information literacy instruction to improve academic productivity and research skills.
