This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to define, locate, select, evaluate and present information in response to identified needs. It applies to individuals employed in any capacity, as well as members of the wider community, as information literacy skills have broad application in all industries, as well as to life skills in general. At this level, work is usually undertaken under supervision, though some autonomy and judgement can be expected within established parameters.
