Abstract

The current research aims to provide psychometric evidence for the UNESCO Information Literacy Lifecycle (UNESCO-ILL), which can be used to evaluate individuals’ stages of acknowledge information literacy. A 20-item UNESCO-ILL was examined with a four-factor structure (i.e., “accessing and utilizing information,” “storing information,” “handling information,” and “disposing information”) reported by previous research. Data was collected from 360 undergraduate and graduate students of the University of Macau in Macau Special Administrative Region (SAR), China. Results showed good fit of the four-factor structure based on the sample data. Additionally, results supported the UNESCO-ILL with a four-factor structure compared with a single-factor structure. Suggestions for future research were provided.
