It is very difficult to give a single definition of information literacy (IL). The term is not identical with computer literacy, and there are some related misunderstandings as well, which are criticised by the author. IL is not identical with the competencies in information technology either. It is not true that students in higher education possess adequate skills in IL. Their IL education cannot be solved by library-centred training. The author thinks that IL must be integrated into the curriculum at every level of education, i.e. in primary, secondary schools and higher education as well. In the second part of the study the author reviews some significant models of IL.
