According to the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL)'s Framework for Information Literacy in Higher Education, information literacy can be described as:
Information literacy is the 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.
As an integral part of the learning process, information literacy is crucial to students' academic performance and whole person education, which is also a skill recognized by the University's Graduate Attributes. Information literacy education is a catalyst to transform the information society of today into the learning society of tomorrow.
The UGC Information Literacy Project draws heavily on the information literacy standards and framework developed by ACRL. Proposed course enhancement should align with these practices and dispositions.

At HKBU Library, we fully support academic excellence at the University through delivering information literacy instructions. Each year, librarians teach over 300 information literacy instructions sessions and we are thriving to equip students with the practical skills, analytical abilities and attitudes that are necessary for finding and using information.
