Application of information and communication technologies has been increasingly expanding and becoming part of everyday life in all developed countries of the world. Alexandria Proclamation on Information Literacy and Lifelong Learning proclaims that information literacy and lifelong learning are the beacons of the information society, illuminating the courses to development, prosperity and freedom.“ Lifelong learning is the value that different countres and international institutions have set as universal and it is an important mission of every modern library. IFLA (International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions) recognizes information literacy as a “basic human right in a digital world that promotes social inclusion of all”. The paper provides some definitions of information literacy, short review of the Alexandria Manifesto, as well as strategic documents of Serbia in this important domain.
