“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, 2016).

 

At the Spalding University Library, we see information literacy as necessary skills for students to succeed in academic scholarship and think critically about their roles as producers and consumers of information in their personal and professional lives.
