Information literacy is the ability to master the processes of becoming informed. An information literacy framework should focus on the capacity of students to build both cognitive and affective knowledge. This entails the formulation of standards and indicators. Hence, we conducted a survey, for which a questionnaire was developed to allow us to understand the views of school principals and teachers on the implementation of an information literacy framework for Hong Kong students. The research findings showed that the standards and indicators we established were recognised. The practitioners agreed with us that the implementation of information literacy standards in schools was not just an issue of enforcing standards; the objective should be to build the capacity of learners and to cultivate school culture.
