Information Literacy

Updated 30 March, 2005
CAUL established the Information Literacy Working Group in April 2003 to provide advice to members.

In the education sector, Information Literacy has been generally defined as an understanding and set of abilities enabling individuals to recognise when information is needed and have the capacity to locate, evaluate, and use effectively the needed information.
(From the ANZ Information Literacy Framework, p.3)

Using the options from the side menu, you will find information on the working group itself, plus some general information on information literacy in tertiary education, especially in Australia.
