In 2006 we developed and presented the first version of a model called Applied Information Literacy. The aim of the model was to embed information literacy into research and writing instruction sessions. We tested the model in our information literacy curricula for a couple of years and found it to be too linear. In addition, the information landscape has changed as various forms of social media have become strong players in students’ everyday information world. Therefore there was a need for us to change and simplify our original model, which we present and discuss. According to the students it seems to work well since the new model contributes to their holistic learning resulting in better academic work.
