What is "information literacy"? Basically, it is the ability to identify, locate, evaluate, and use information effectively and ethically (adapted from American Library Association. Presidential Committee on Information Literacy. Final Report, 1989; University of California. Academic Council. University Committee on Library. 2003. “Resolution on Information Literacy").
See also: California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger's Executive Order on ICT (Information and Communications Technologies Literacy S-06-09 (May 28, 2009) and President Barak Obama's Presidential Proclamation: National Information Literacy Awareness Month, October 2009. The California ICT Task Force issued a Report with a number of recommendations in July 2010, entitled: "Digital Literacy Pathways in California."
