Abstract

To give a comparative analysis of the validity of the concepts of eLiteracy (eL) and Information Literacy (IL). eLiteracy and Information Literacy are different but mutually compatible concepts with validity within specific contexts. By defining concepts clearly, this paper attempts to inform and clarify the framework for practical LIS research.
