Information Literacy and You
Information literacy is the hyper abilities of a professional, team a particular body that requires them to know when there is a need for information, to be capable enough to recognize, pinpoint, analyze, and properly and effectively utilize the identified and required information for the concern and/or problem facing them.
Research as inquiry
Information creation as a process
Information has value
Firstly and based on my understanding, research is a process in which the concerned entity asks questions to explore things and gather data as per the desired outcomes and that’s why research is known as inquiry. Another is, information creation is a process because it assists one to choose relevant sources to utilize while information always has value and that is why information at hand should be used as finely as possible (Head, & Wihbey, 2014).
Application to me
These concepts apply to me in different ways such as;
Research as inquiry applies to me that I should be engaged in inquiring information if I work on any academic research assignment or research paper.
Information creation as a process applies to me in a way that I always look for appropriate resources when getting something important such as gathering authentic material for exam studies etc.
Last, information has value applies to me in a way that requires me to value and learn every informative thing taught to me instead of devaluing it.
Importance of Information Literacy for College Students
Students need information literacy because information literacy promotes problem-solving approaches for students and improve their thinking skills when they are engaged in where the information is needed, what type of information is needed, and how to use information (Ross, Perkins, & Bodey, 2016).
The above concepts apply to me in my professional life in the following ways.
These concepts enable me to inquire about every possible data and information that I need to solve my personal and professional problems. While I would apply the concept “Information has value” by asking questions and seeking answers when I have a concern at hand.
They apply to my personal and professional life in the way that I would allow me to not look for everything available while categorizes things available and use the relevant so I would have the desired results.
In professional life, it is a fact that people have complex problems that need quality information and material to solve. So the information has value applies enabling me to try to gather and warehouse information as much as possible so that I may solve any complex in an easy manner (Koltay, 2011).
