Information Literacy and Information Technology


” Information literacy is related to information technology skills, but has

broader implications for the individual, the educational system, and for

society. Information technology skills enable an individual to use computers,

software applications, databases, and other technologies to achieve a

wide variety of academic, work-related, and personal goals. Information

literate individuals necessarily develop some technology skills.”
