It is important to teach students information literacy skills. For university students this is often demonstrated by their ability to craft a research question, determine the information needed to support their research, find and evaluate that information, and ethically use the information. The COVID-19 pandemic challenged librarians to think outside the box about ways to connect with students and disseminate the necessary information literacy skills. Librarians created LibGuides, videos, tutorials, and conducted virtual information literacy sessions. This chapter aims to provide insights on the COVID-19 pandemic on both student and librarian perceptions of information literacy skills. In addition, the chapter will also offer a few suggestions to mitigate the roadblocks to successful dissemination of information literacy skills by librarians.
