Information Literacy Exam (ILE)

Information Literacy is the ability to find, evaluate, and use information in order to solve problems. This guide will connect you with information and links to help you find the information literacy tutorial, exam, and how to generate a certificate of completion.

Completion of the Information Literacy Exam (ILE) is a requirement intended to connect you with library resources, tools, and services and sharpen your information literacy skills. The ILE is open-book, multiple choice, untimed, and unlimited retakes are available to pass.
