What is "information literacy"?
"Information literacy is the set of integrated abilities encompassing the reflective discovery of information, the understanding of how information is produced and valued, and the use of information in creating new knowledge and participating ethically in communities of learning." (ACRL Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education 2015)
The Research Companion incorporates theories from the Association of Research and College Libraries Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education.
