Individuals and organisations are deluged with information. Getting the most out of it, finding, interpreting and using it requires skills, know-how and judgement.

The ability to navigate effectively and confidently through the information maze is known as information literacy.

We provide a range of services to raise awareness of its benefits for individuals, organisations and communities. InformAll brings together experts with distinctive perspectives and we work collaboratively with our partners and clients to offer practical research-based guidance and support.

InformAll is dedicated to getting information literacy better recognised and understood across society as an important contributor to education and learning at all stages, as well as to social inclusiveness, citizenship and economic effectiveness. Find out about who we are, what we have to offer and why information literacy is important.
