ABSTRACT
The article presents a study which looks at the information literacy (IL) skills in Year 14 school-leaving pupils. It aims to determine the level of the students' IL skills, their views on IL, and the skills required in higher education. The study reveals the vague awareness of pupils of the importance of IL skills and that their skills were underdeveloped. The role of school librarians in helping students develop their existing skills are explored.
