Introduction Bibliographic instruction has come a long way from the "library instruction" of the 20th century to the "information literacy" of the 21st. Its evolution from "finding your way in the library" to "gaining critical skills to function in the information age" is reflected through the increasing specialization of information literacy pedagogy in higher education. Information professionals' sustained interest in information literacy through various initiatives has led to the redefining of concepts like information, literacy, learning, thinking, and expertise in the context of education and converging technologies. Essentially, information literacy has advanced from a concept to a discipline that subsumes multiple literacies, multiple skills, and multiple competencies in a variety of contexts (Virkus 2003).
