Possible relationship between use of information sources and information literacy

Information acquisition by individuals can be obtained as far as these individuals can achieve and dominate the actions related to place, access and use of information sources to build up knowledge. These actions can be understood as information literacy. The aim of this article is to discuss the possible interrelations that can be established between the use of information sources and information literacy. Based on a bibliographical research it was possible to investigate the existing connections between sources, industry and information literacy. We discuss the role of libraries in meeting the information needs of users and the possible sources of response. We found that all these are responsible for information literacy: the contemporary information industries, challenges pointed out by information technology such as informational flow vector, issues related to literacy and information sources as a link of social and economic development, and the implementation of a research agenda for this topic.
