Abstract  In this paper, ACRL (2000), ANZIIL (2004), SCONUL (2011) and Information Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education in Beijing(Beijing(2006)) are compared and the conclusion that ACRL (2000) is the most comprehensive of them is get. With the IT skills considered in SCONUL (2011) and Beijing(2006), the model is built based on ACRL (2000) and computer self-efficacy. 929 copies of questionnaire are analyzed by Structural Equation Model(SEM),and results reveal that (Ⅰ) ACRL (2000) is appropriate to evaluate information literacy; (Ⅱ) Computer self-efficacy does not belong to information literacy competency; (Ⅲ) The path coefficients indicate that information evaluation, information need, and information ethics are the main element of information literacy, meanwhile information access and information use are relatively less significant.
Key wordsStructural equation model      Information literacy standard      Computer self-efficacy
