LILAC What is Information Literacy?

What is Information Literacy?

LILAC defines information literacy as the ability to find, use, evaluate and communicate information. We see it as the cornerstone of learning and an essential skill in this digital age and era of life-long learning. Media coverage of reports such as the Google Generation and Digital Britain demonstrate how information literacy skills are increasingly being recognised by those outside the library profession as being essential for all.
