Abstract
The purpose of this conceptual paper is to critically review and identify issues in the literature relating to the concept of Information Literacy and how it is being assessed. It provides arguments that the existing information literacy conceptualization and subsequent models do not support the perspective and understanding of information literacy at the workplace, especially in developing countries like Nigeria. Key literature and common models of information literacy are examined to identify the conceptualization of the construct of information literacy and its relevance to practices in the workplace. The paper also argues that existing information literacy models are not inclusive of the theoretical perspective of the person-inpractice workplace information environment and proposes a model that sets the basis for empirical studies on information literacy in the workplace, specifically in developing countries. The proposed model will assist researchers to understand the major components of workplace information literacy and how to assess information literacy of a person in practice at the workplace.
