      "Information Literacy" is defined as the ability to know when there is a need for information, and be able to locate, manage, critically evaluate and use information for problem solving, research, decision making, and continued professional development.  Information literacy forms the basis for lifelong learning and 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 control over their own learning.
