LILAC 2018 saw the unveiling of a new definition of information literacy by CILIP Information Literacy Group (ILG).
The new definition reads “Information literacy is the ability to think critically and make balanced judgements about any information we find and use. It empowers us as citizens to reach and express informed views and to engage fully with society”.

On Saturday, 23rd April 2016, Beyoncé surprised the music would (and everyone else), by releasing a visual album, Lemonade.
The album is loaded with pop culture and historical references as well as many collaborations. It is, therefore, very useful as an information literacy tool (as well as being a great piece of visual and musical art)!
