The American Library Association (ALA) defines Information Literacy as a person's ability to recognize when information is needed, locate, evaluate, and effectively use said information. Since the increased use of the World Wide Web for information and the continued globalization of industry and education this skill has been embraced as a part of the college learning experience and holds implications for student testing and college accreditation.
Information Literacy is a popular way for faculty and librarians to collaborate inside and outside of the classroom. Popular collaborations include co-teaching courses, embedded librarians, creating tutorials, and library instruction.
