The Association of College and Research Libraries of the American Library Association defines information literacy as a "set of abilities requiring individuals to recognize when information is needed and have the ability to locate, evaluate, and use effectively the needed information" (p. 2) Information Literacy Standards for Higher Education.
Information literacy relates to critical thinking and information technology as well.
