As far as the standards developed by ACRL are concerned, which group aca- demic and research libraries, they insist on the concepts of standard , perfor- mance indicator and result , offering an ef fi cient framework for evaluation. The user of information literacy follows these steps: 1. De fi nes the nature and context of the information he looked for. The perfor- mance indicators are: His capacity of focusing and identifying various types and formats of possible sources that could be useful; To consider the operation costs and bene fi ts; and To reassess the nature and context of required information. 2. Accesses the information he needs, in an ef fi cient and effective way. For this, the performance indicators are: The capacity of choosing the best investigation methods or the most adequate systems of information retrieval ; Building and implementing adequate research strategies; Retrieval of information online or otherwise using different methods; Improvement, if necessary, of the research strategy (at the end of this route); and Extracting, recording, and administration of information and sources. 3. Evaluates in a critical way the retrieved information and data sources including the data selected in his cognitive memory. The performance indicators are: Synthesising the main ideas extracted from retrieved information; Applying initial criteria for assessing both information and sources; Building new concepts starting from the main ideas; Comparing new knowledge with previous, in order to determine its validity; Comparing their own acquisition for a subsequent validation; and Determining if the initial hypothesis needs to be revised. 4. Uses the information in an ef fi cient way, in order to accomplish a speci fi c objective in time. Performance indicators are: Applying new information and that previously obtained, in planning and creating a certain product; Revising, in a critical way, the process with respect to the respective product; and Communicating the product to other information stakeholders. 3.6 Standards of Information Literacy 29

5. Understands many of the economic, legal and social issues, in context of use, informs and has access to information, being aware of social, economic, legal and moral elements. The performance indicators are: Understanding the moral, social, economic and legal elements, which repre- sent a foundational basis in the world of information and TIC, as a conse- quence of laws, regulations and institutional policies related to information resource access and use; and Use of information sources in communication processes and their contribution to the fi nal product. 3.7 Models of Information Literacy There is a high number of research models and problem solving in information literacy. The most well known are: BIG6, Kuhlthau, The Seven Pillars Model, Research Cycle. Next, SCONUL, a model developed and updated in 2011 by the Society of College, National and University Libraries (SCONUL).

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
