Information literacy benefits:

  • Students learn to find, evaluate and synthesize information thus developing critical thinking skills which hopefully leads to better research.
  • Better research should lead to more success in studies thus increasing the retention rates of students here at Lakehead.
  • The skills they develop here are transferable to their eventual workplace making our students more marketable.

"Ultimately, information literate people are those who have learned how to learn. They know how to learn because they know how knowledge is organized, how to find information, and how to use information in such a way that others can learn from them. They are people prepared for lifelong learning, because they can always find the information needed for any task or decision at hand." -American Library Association. Presidential Committee on Information Literacy: Final Report.
