Rapid change in technology, information overload, conflicting definitions, emerging perspectives, and competing models have made it difficult to develop a consistent, coherent understanding of information literacy. The purpose of this study was to develop a comprehensive framework for understanding and assessing information literacy in the 21st century. A review of 50 articles between 2004 and 2014 was conducted to identify major research themes and trends in understanding information literacy. A new framework, called the 5Ps (planning, picking, processing, producing, and presenting) was proposed to understand and assess new directions of information literacy. The 5Ps model reveals that information literacy is moving from an information seeking approach to an information producing approach calling for higher-order thinking skills.
