ABSTRACT
Every teacher candidates no matter what disciplines of teaching they study is supposed to acquire information literacy in order to enhance his/her future teaching activities and create more enjoyable atmosphere for the students. The present study investigates what levels of knowledge pre-service teachers enrolled in science education and primary school teacher preparation programs possess regarding information literacy. The participants (N=144) were asked to complete the Information Literacy Questionnaire for Pre-service Teachers (ILIPT). Comparison between students? information literacy levels in two different teacher preparation programs and potential causes are explicitly examined. The outcomes of this investigation revealed that even though pre-service teachers possess adequate knowledge of information literacy, they still lack some of its aspects.
