Information literacy is defined as "the ability to solve information-based problems: acquire, critically evaluate, select, use, create and communicate information in ways which lead to knowledge and wisdom". (Ontario School Library Association, Information Studies, 1999 document). In order to succeed in a constantly changing technological world, students must be information literate. They should be able to locate, critically examine and use information to solve problems. The Library program at Michael Power St. Joseph, supports and promotes learning technology and information literacy.
