IL Definitions and Models

"Information literacy is the ability to think critically and make balanced judgments about any information we find and use. It empowers us as citizens to develop informed views and to engage fully with society." (CILIP 2018)

The library is also keen to support digital literacies "as the capabilities which fit someone for living, learning and working in a digital society" (JISC 2015).

More on definitions and models can be found here.
