In the Digital age, characterized by rapid technological change and proliferating information resources, the need of information literacy has notably increased. It is not possible anymore to visit courses on everything we need to learn. Although Information Literacy is significant for students of all educational levels, it has become even more significant for e-learners. E-learning environments offer an education alternatives and lifelong learning opportunities and provide students with stand-alone, independent, and self-directed learning processes. Therefore e-learners should acquire information skills, learn how to learn and use appropriate learning strategies. In this context, students should be assisted in their self-education. The provision of modern e-courses and more advanced information literacy courses by educators, with the collaboration of librarians seems to be a natural way of fulfilling this mission.
The relevance and applicability of Information Literacy and lifelong learning initiatives can be most meaningfully illuminated by focusing on Learning and Education sector. This paper provides an overview of recent studies and researches concerning e-learning and information Literacy field. It presents the application of e-learning in developing students’ information literacy, discuss how can information skills be integrated in the e-learning process? Which services should be developed in order to guide e-learners? And which partners?
