On January 4, 2023, Governor Murphy signed into law a new information literacy bill. The bill requires the New Jersey Department of Education to develop New Jersey Student Learning Standards in “information literacy,” which is defined as a set of skills that enables an individual to recognize when information is needed and to locate, evaluate, and effectively use the needed information. Information literacy includes, but is not limited to, digital, visual, media, textual, and technological literacy. This bill makes New Jersey the first state to require K-12 Information Literacy Education.
