ABSTRACT
The purpose of this study was to investigate the effectiveness of first-grade information literacy instruction and students', teacher's as well as parents' opinions towards the curriculum. The fields of library literacy and media literacy of this curriculum were the focuses of this study, which lasted for a year. The data were gathered through participant observations, interviews, tests and surveys. The results showed that students' library and media literacy were improved; they did not like the units involving reading and writing, though their performance on them was fine. Both teachers and parents thought information literacy instruction would help other subjects learning and should be taught systematically.
