English abstract

Information plays a very vital role in the economic and social development of a country. The article is deals with the ‘new approaches of Information Literacy and Learning Styles. Information Literacy (IL) has different meaning to different people and is known by different names: Library Orientation; Bibliographic Instruction; User Education; Information Skills Training. All the forms of IL are closely related to each other but information skills training and information literacy concentrated on cognitive and transferable skills such as problem solving, evaluation and communication skills. This set of abilities is called Information Literacy which is actually the vehicle for autonomous and lifelong learning. Resource based learning is a methodology that allows students to learn from their own confrontation with information resources. Such active learning provides a means by which teachers are able to tailor information resources, learning activities, the location of those activities and expected learning outcomes to the needs and abilities of each child. In developing these abilities, teachers and teacher librarians work cooperatively to combine knowledge of the curriculum, knowledge of individual students' needs and competencies and knowledge of information sources, resources and technologies.
