Information Literacy Defined Information literacy forms the basis for lifelong learning. It is common to all disciplines, to all learning environments, and to all levels of education. It enables learners to master content and extend their investigations, become more self-directed, and assume greater control over their own learning. “Information literacy” and “foundations and skills for lifelong learning” are among the Essential Learning Outcomes developed by AACU (American Association of Colleges and Universities) Information literacy is not the same as computer literacy (which requires a technological know-how to manipulate computer hardware and software)
