Information Literacy and Library Instruction

Information literacy (IL) is knowledge of how to find, access, evaluate, and ethically use information. The Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL) has defined and described the scope of IL for academic libraries and programs.

Library instruction includes not only IL but also the philosophy of knowledge (epistemology),  the structure of knowledge as it is written, published, and classified in libraries, and the scholarly cycle of information (how it is created, discovered, written, published).
