What is Information Literacy?

How do you find the information you need for papers, projects, speeches,  for work, and even for life?

Information Literacy can be thought of as a set of critical thinking skills that can be used in school, on the job, and throughout the lifespan.

It's a rational way of thinking that allows you to approach problem-solving in a logical way and cut through the information overload of the 21st century to find valid answers to your questions.
