Information has value. One aspect of information literacy is understanding and acknowledging the value of information. 

Three practices for valuing information:

  • Giving credit to the original ideas of others through proper attribution and citation
  • Understanding that intellectual property is a legal and social construct that varies by culture
  • Articulating the purpose and distinguishing characteristics of copyright, fair use, open access, and the public domain
