ABSTRACT
This paper outlines the stages that were followed in developing an information literacy policy and its subsequent implementation at the Cape Peninsula University of Technology (CPUT). The paper clearly highlights the challenges and opportunities presented during the process. The paper also presents results of a mini information literacy audit conducted in CPUT to gauge how faculties were responding to the policy guidelines. It was also important to identify the gaps and work on strategies to address those. These strategies will be discussed. Furthermore the paper also outlines how an Online Information Literacy Module has been developed and how it is used by various academics in the institution to enrich and enhance their Information Literacy curriculum. Lastly the paper presents information on how the library uses the institution's eLearning platform, Blackboard, to administer tests for various lecturers who make use of this online module.
