Information Literacy

Information literacy is knowing when and why you need information, where to find it, and how to evaluate, use and communicate it in an ethical manner.

This definition is one shared between CILIP in Scotland and CILIP UK wide. Further information and resources can be found here on the CILIP wesbite.

CILIPS are represented at the Information Literacy Community of Practice that meets regularly and are working together to highlight the importance of information literacy based skills and the role that library and information staff can play in delivering these skills.
