Students have always needed information literacy skills in order to search for, find, evaluate and utilize information. Prior to the Internet, cable TV, and particularly the web-based structure developed in the early 1990's, this usually was focused on school, public and academic library resources. With the enormous proliferation of information such as the Web, 24 hour cable channels and talk radio, search and evaluation skills are more critical than ever. No longer are students focused on knowledge resources that have been screened for accuracy and selected by trained librarians and other information professionals. Students must be lifelong critical thinkers constantly evaluating the massive amount of information they can find with a simple web search.
