Information literacy has long been seen as an empowering tool, one that is very useful in helping people navigate the information landscape and make informed decisions. This paper discusses how information literacy could be used to address concerns pertaining to the infodemic, as well as the different approaches selected groups and institutions have taken to address these concerns. It also discusses new information practices that have emerged in this time of pandemic, as well as the kinds of information disorder that came along with it. Through these discussions, this paper could be a useful source for librarians and information literacy educators as they develop and implement their respective information literacy programs.
