The CILIP Information Literacy Group is proud to offer an award for achievement in the field of information literacy (IL). IL “is the ability to think critically and make balanced judgements about any information we find and use. It empowers us as citizens to reach and express informed views and to engage fully in society”. IL applies within a number of contexts, including:
Everyday – when people find information online
Citizenship – helping people to understand the world around us
Education – developing critical thinking skills at all stages of education, from school to higher education.
The workplace - contributing to employability
Health – finding reliable sources of health information.
