dc.description.abstractInformation Literacy (IL) and its relationship to third level graduates’ employability has gained more attention in recent years. This article examines how IL has evolved from skills initially associated with academic libraries into a key workplace skill set of the knowledge economy. It outlines the challenges interviewees encounter when selling IL to employers, how IL can be utilised when preparing for upcoming interviews and suggests a distinction between workplace IL and employability IL. It describes measures that Dublin Business School (DBS) and its Information Literacy Librarian have undertaken in order to enhance graduates employability, with a focus on the use and transferability of IL into the workplace.en
