Abstract
As more information come to individuals in various formats and are not filtered, thus its authenticity and truth are questionable, demanding individuals to have adequate information literacy capabilities. Teaching information literacy can equip students with anti-plagiarism attitudes and encourage personal formation as superior learners. Pragmatism encourages learning information literacy by using experiences as a way to deal with new things both in personal and community life. The teacher directs the students’ learning experience without confusing their interests and needs. However, pragmatism can be seen as a dangerous threat because it never considers the substance behind reality but tends to be at the level of practical science to solve problems faced by human beings. Indonesia, as a multicultural country, needs to develop information literacy learning based on a more democratic educational philosophy.
