Introduction to Information Literacy Training Program

Information literacy is a set of abilities requiring individuals to recognize when information is needed and have the ability to locate, evaluate,and use effectively the needed information. (ACRL, 2000). These abilities are essential for 21st. century education to achieve its ultimate goals which are to produces an independent and long-life learner generation. According to this definition, there are main areas where students need to be literate in order to be a successful learner and furthermore, member of information society. Those main areas are:

  • Recognize the information needs

  • Locate the information in various kind of resources and materials

  • Select and evaluate the best suitable information for their need

  • Use the information in analytical manner and appropriate ways 

To support that goal, The Johannes Oentoro Library initiate the Information Literacy Training Program that provides some courses to enhance student's information literacy abilities. The training program use The BIG6 model as one of information literacy model as its training frame work. The model cover all the essential information literacy competency areas as mention in ACRL (Association of College and Research Libraries) definition. The trainer use this model as a guide for students to help them whenever they deal with information problem. All the courses have been developed based on this model. To the present time, we offer 9 courses of information literacy training for students and staff. We manage to conduct regular survey to evaluate the courses, to be sure that the courses are the most needed by the library user.
