Information Literacy in Business: Home


Hello! This is a collection of resources and observations about information literacy in business education and specifically the Monte Ahuja College of Business. It will be a working document as we review more literature and continue to build our knowledge on the subject.

Information literacy can be defined in many ways, but ACRL (Association of College & Research Libraries) defines it as a "set of integrated abilities encompassing the reflective discovery of information, the understanding of how information is produced and valued, and the use of information in creating new knowledge and participating ethically in communities of learning." (2015).

Information literacy and the skills that come with it -- being able to locate information, evaluate it, utilize it and create new knowledge out of it -- are oft cited as being desirable to employers. In the 2015 NACE Job Outlook Survey, the ability to obtain and process information was rated as 4.57 on a scale of 1 to 5, 5 being "very important" by employers (p. 35).
