What is Information Literacy?

Support for information literacy among the RMU community constitutes a fundamental principle for all RMU Library activities. In providing for the community's information needs, and fostering the thoughtful use, evaluation, and organization of information throughout the research process, the RMU Library facilitates the analytical thinking and integrative reasoning critical to the intellectual development of students and the professional achievement of faculty and staff.
