100% INFORMATION LITERACY SUCCESS, a text in the 100% Success Series, teaches students and professionals to develop crucial information skills to succeed in today's academic and professional environments. The second edition of 100% INFORMATION LITERACY SUCCESS is designed to actively help students develop skills beyond the classroom, focusing on those skills necessary for twenty-first-century learners and workers. Using hands-on learning activities and real-world applications, the text teaches readers how to determine the nature and extent of information needed to solve a problem, how to access the information effectively, how to evaluate the information found, how to use the information for a specific purpose, and how to communicate the information effectively and legally.
