Description Information literacy skills help students for life-long learning. The study investigated self-efficacy as predictor of information literacy skills of students in Government Technical Colleges in South-south Nigeria. The main objective of the study was to find the level of self-efficacy of the students and to what extent self-efficacy predicts information literacy skills. Descriptive survey method was used. A structured questionnaire was used for data collection from a study populationofs 660. The result showed a significant relationship between self-efficacy and information literacy skills. The study recommended the incorporation of information literacy skills as part of the school curriculum and the introduction of activities to boost the self-efficacy of students. Also, student information literacy training and activities should be introduced early.
