Abstract

The purposes of this study were to assess information literacy (IL) skills among undergraduate students of Banditpatanasilpa Institute with regard to the ACRL standards and to compare IL skills with the factor variables and their gender, year of study, faculty, grade, and most information source usage and self-direct learning. The Purposive sampling was used to select 366 undergraduate students. The research instrument was an IL test. The results revealed that the students had a medium level of information literacy (Mean = 12.15). The comparison of the students’ IL and their gender, year of study, faculty, grade, and most information source usage found that there were different information literacy skills with a statistical a significance of .01 and .05. Therefore, students with different levels of self-direct learning did not differ in terms of their IL skills.
