What Is Information Literacy?


Information Literacy is the set of skills needed to find, retrieve, analyze, and use information. Information literacy classes are available in face-to-face and online formats for all courses in San Antonio, Woodlands, and RGV. Sessions cover topics from general library orientation to assignment-specific instruction.
