About the Product

100% INFORMATION LITERACY SUCCESS, a text in the 100% Success Series, teaches students and professionals to develop crucial information skills to succeed in today's academic and professional environments. The second edition of 100% INFORMATION LITERACY SUCCESS is designed to actively help students to develop skills beyond the classroom, focusing on those skills necessary for twenty-first-century learners and workers. Using hands-on learning activities and real-world applications, the text teaches readers how to determine the nature and extent of information needed to solve a problem, how to access the information effectively, how to evaluate the information found, how to use the information for a specific purpose, and how to effectively and legally communicate the information.


  • Learning Objectives, like those provided on course syllabi, provide students with an outline of what they should be learning from the chapter.

  • Case In Point Scenarios, found at the beginning of each chapter, are case studies that demonstrate the application of chapter concepts to the real world.

  • Critical Thinking Questions challenge students to examine ideas and thoughtfully apply concepts presented in the text.

  • At the end of each chapter, Apply It! activities (formerly named Learning Activities) help students apply the concepts discussed throughout the chapter in practical situations.


"100% Information Literacy Success . . . is written simply without the sense of being dumb-downed. It covers all aspects of information literacy in a nice building block scenario. It gives real life scenarios that the students can relate to and the exercises and activities are designed well." -- Ailya Rose, Santa Barbara Business College
