This paper presents a quantitative analysis of information literacy competencies level within nine universities of Lithuania.

Comparative analysis of the data between full-time and extramural study mode students revealed differences in the level of competencies between students in the two modes of study. The article presents a theoretical overview of the relevant literature and policy documents relating to information literacy and discusses the research findings obtained in a questionnaire survey. The current situation related to information literacy competencies and the need to develop them is revealed. (Contains 12 figures.)
