Information Literacy for Psychology Students

The Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL) defines information literacy as the ability for students to "recognize when information is needed and have the ability to locate, evaluate, and use effectively the needed information." In 2010, ACRL approved information literacy competencies for undergraduate students in psychology. These are based on the general information literacy competencies from ACRL AND the APA Guidelines for the Undergraduate Psychology Majors (2007).
