Developing lifelong learners is central to the mission of higher education institutions. In this view, Information Literacy Skills (ILS) and knowledge are essential in a global information environment characterized by constant change, innovation and a multiplicity of formats and media, and an explosion in the amount of information of variable quality. The module, though designed for undergraduate students at Great Zimbabwe University, is also useful for graduate students and staff. The ILS module is intended to develop students to appreciate the theoretical and practical understanding of Information Literacy Skills and its concepts. Information Literacy is increasingly becoming important in the contemporary environment due to technological change and proliferating information resources. Individuals are faced with diverse, abundant information choices in their academic studies due to the escalating complexity of this environment. Effective use of this information requires relevant skills, which stretch beyond the simple technical skills of using specific databases or sources.
