Information literacy might sound like a jargony term! However, it encompasses important things you should be doing everyday. For example, if you talk to someone about the credibility of a source, that is information literacy. If you cite your material appropriately in order to build knowledge and your reputation in the field, that is also information literacy. It can be really confusing to know how to tell if a source is credible or not or if you should be using a scholarly journal or popular article for a reference.
Luckily, we have developed some helpful tutorials for you to improve your confidence level in your information literacy skills. After viewing these videos, see if you can successfully complete the activity or concept the videos cover. This helps you to evaluate if you have learned that skill independently.
