Abstract
The needs for independent 'lifelong learning' is on the rise for the individuals living in today's fast-paced society. As a result, the significance of 'information literacy' as the core requirement for lifelong learning has become widely recognized. Some countries have even established standards for information literacy at the national level, and introduced programs to improve the overall level of information literacy in the school curriculum. In Korea, various studies have been done to identify the importance of information literacy, and also there are increasing offerings of information literacy programs in regular curriculum. Based on the result of self-efficiency assessment by the students who attended the information literacy courses, this study tries to examine the effects of those programs. It consequently confirms that these curriculums resulted in improvement of the information literacy of the students, and also provide some suggestions and guidelines for the design of the curriculum for information based on the findings.
