    <description descriptionType="Abstract">&lt;p&gt;Google is both a bane and a boon. One of its greatest merits is that it empowers&lt;br /&gt;
users, even with little IT and/or information retrieval skills, to find information&lt;br /&gt;
easily on the Web. However, at the same time there is the danger that&lt;br /&gt;
many users start believing that they are highly information literate. In order&lt;br /&gt;
to avoid such wrong self-evaluations, multiple choice questionnaires could&lt;br /&gt;
be a promising approach since they allow a quick (self-) assessment of the&lt;br /&gt;
respective level of information literacy.&lt;br /&gt;
This article reports on a survey in which such an information literacy questionnaire&lt;br /&gt;
was used to assess information literacy of students in a bachelor&lt;br /&gt;
course providing an introduction to this topic. For this purpose, the test instrument&lt;br /&gt;
which was developed at the University of D&amp;uuml;sseldorf (Beutelspacher&lt;br /&gt;
2014a) was slightly adopted to the professional background of the&lt;br /&gt;
students (business administration). In this article, we will report about the&lt;br /&gt;
acceptance of this test instrument by the business administration students,&lt;br /&gt;
about the experienced advantages, the perceived problem areas, and those&lt;br /&gt;
information literacy aspects which cannot be covered by such an instrument&lt;br /&gt;
in their opinion.&lt;/p&gt;</description>
