Digital Literacy is the ability to use information and communication technologies to find, evaluate, create, and communicate information, requiring both cognitive and technical skills (The American Library Association Digital-Literacy Task Force, n.d.).
When determining the best sources for support, be sure to follow the CRAAP Method:
To be truly 'information literate' requires that you simultaneously develop:
an awareness of how you engage with the digital world
recognition of how you find meaning in the information you discover
a method to articulate what kind of information you require
a knowledge of how to use information ethically
an understanding of the role you can play in the communication in your profession and
mastery of how you evaluate information for credibility and authority.
