Information literacy is defined as the ability to recognize when information is needed and the ability to locate, evaluate, and use effectively the needed information. It has been a subject for discussion amongst librarians and information professionals since the 1970’s and there are numerous information literacy initiatives that are in place in educational institutions worldwide.
