Traditionally, Literacy means the ability to read and write. But there seems to be various types of literacy. Such as audio-visual literacy, print literacy, computer literacy, media literacy, web literacy, technical literacy, functional literacy, library literacy and information literacy etc. Nominal and active literacy too focuses on making people aware to read and write in their day to day activities. Information literacy is quite different to the above. It is a combination of all these concepts but goes beyond them. Information Literacy is the set of skills needed to find, retrieve, analyse, and use information. The twenty-first century has been named the information era, owing to the explosion of information and the information sources.
