Where Does Research Fit In?

Information Literacy 

What is information literacy and why do you need to know about it? Information literacy describes someone who is able to recognize when information is needed, and they have the ability to locate, evaluate, and use effectively the needed information to learn, understand, explain, or teach. 

This process can seem daunting when starting out. Through these three modules, we will break down the pieces of information literacy and learn how each can help us to learn and succeed doing research.
