Description

The greatest challenge for society in the 21st century is to keep pace with the knowledge and technological expertise necessary for finding, applying and evaluating information. It is acknowledged that we live in an information-rich society where the amount of information in the world is presently doubling every three years. Therefore it is necessity of 21st century to include information literacy in education.
Information literate people have a number of qual i t ies and skills (Engeldinger, 1998). We are living in the information age. Information is the basic requirement for every human activity and it is important as food, air and water. Information in itself has no value, but its value lies in its communication and use. Informationliteracyplaysa transformational role in building the information capability at large. It is rightly said that the cultural and educational opportunities available in a community are often missed by people who lack the ability to keep informed of such activities therefore it is a means of personal empowerment. It creates the habit of lifelong learning (Rao and Nagar, 2005). Information literacy is a skill that is widely relevant and extends beyond the walls of the classroom into the world of social responsibility (Idiodi, 2005).
