As observed by SCECSAL (2010), Information Literacy (IL) is a complicated concept charged with values, judgments and power dynamics, and thus subject to considerable controversy and debate.
These, according to SCECSAL, (2010) include; embedding IL programmes into institutions because it is key to raising institutional standards overall by improving the quality of research, teaching and learning; pedagogical innovation and assessment of IL training; use of new technologies in IL and other initiatives such as distance education, research and publication activities related to information literacy.
According to SCECSAL (2010), Information Literacy is increasingly important in this 21st Century due to the abundance of information resources, methods required for accessing them, unfiltered information content as well as ethical and legal challenges.
