Abstract

Development of information literacy in universities is packed into various activities aimed at improving the quality of learning in universities. The quality of learning is related to the ability to identify, seek, find, evaluate, and utilize information. This ability is called information literacy. Therefore, through this information literacy program, students are expected to become competent and independent individuals. In addition, students are also able to solve the problem of information found. Through the competency standard of information literacy, students can define their information needs, obtain information needed effectively and efficiently, evaluate and select information according to their needs, use information to achieve their objectives and use information according to ethics and legally. Thus, students can adapt to change and can produce scientific works that meet international standards. The issues that will be discussed in this paper are (a) the importance of information literacy in universities; (b) the competence of student information literacy; and (c) information literacy activities in universities.
