Information Literacy is the ability to understand when outside information is needed, how to search for that information, and how to decide if that information can be trusted.
Information literacy is a cumulation of skills around finding, evaluating, and using sources. There are many different types of information literacy, such as: data literacy, social media literacy, academic research literacy.
This Infoguide focuses on aiding students in finding academic sources, evaluating them for their projects, and using them ethically.
RIT Libraries is here to help support information literacy across the university by providing these unique tools and working with faculty and students to create and deliver learning and teaching activities that develop information literacy competencies.
