Information Literacy: The Global Picture

The American University Library's information literacy tutorial takes users through five stages:
  1. Choosing a research topic
  2. Identifying what information is needed
  3. Search strategies
  4. Evaluating information
  5. Citing information
It is particularly targeted at those using the library for research, and is quite specific in parts, but the general principles of IL that it covers could apply to a wide range of information seekers.
