"No other change in American society has offered greater challenges than the emergence of the Information Age."
Librarians have embraced these challenges by pioneering innovative ways to assist and educate their clientele in navigating what has become an increasingly vast universe of information. The National Forum on Information Literacy defines the information literate individual as one who possesses "the ability to know when there is a need for information", and to " be able to identify, locate, evaluate, and effectively use that information for the issue or problem at hand." Librarians are committed to information literacy by empowering users with the knowledge and skills essential for reaping the full benefits of our information rich society.
