University of Library Studies and Information Technologies (BULGARIA)
In recent years, information literacy has emerged as a concept and is embedded in many international projects, educational programs and initiatives, with the main task not only to promote this concept but also to promote it as one of the possible solutions to overcome the “digital divide”. Probably this is due to the fact that information literacy is one of the key competencies that underlies and builds the fundamental knowledge of modern society.

We are witnessing that after the mass introduction of innovative information and communication technologies in people’s lives, various studies related to the impact of the Internet on the psyche and cognitive abilities of man, were conducted which have a significant impact on successful learning of young people in the university information environment. For this reason, this paper examines the various manifestations of culture, and in particular the influence of individual elements and features of culture in the process of information literacy training in the universities. Based on the fact that the culture of different nations and ethnic groups has a positive or negative effect on the perception and understanding of new knowledge and leads to a change in values and abilities to build social connections, contacts, etc., it is necessary to study the relationship between culture and information literacy. A natural liaison between these two concepts is the university information environment, which is the focus of all processes accompanying on the one hand education and on the other education and the formation of values in young people.

In this regard, this paper presents specific educational approaches to the formation of information literacy in young people as a set of skills that contribute to the recognition and evaluation of information and its effective application and use according to the goals of the individual or of the group of people. In particular, the economic, law and social aspects related to access to information and the mechanisms for knowledge transfer that are influencing the formation of values in society, are considered.
