Information Literacy at Chaffey College

Chaffey College is committed to promote information literacy in order for our students to optimally function in our information age.

What is information literacy?
Information literacy is a set of skills which enable an individual to identify what information is needed and to locate, evaluate and use the information effectively.

Why is information literacy important?
Information literacy provides the tools for lifelong learning. It applies to all learning environments, all disciplines, and all levels of education. It enables individuals to become self-directed, to master content and assume control over one’s own learning.

How will students use information literacy skills?
Chaffey College students will use information literacy skills to write accurate and effective research papers and to perform other research related tasks such as oral presentations and group projects.
