What is Information Literacy?

The Association of College & Research Libraries (ACRL) Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education provides the starting point for conversations between librarians and teaching faculty. 

"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." (Association of College & Research Libraries, 02/02/15)
