Abstract: The study presents the information literacy competency of the research scholars in the Kerala University, India. The study analyses the problems faced by the research scholars in formulation of research topic, identification and evaluation of information sources and designing the strategies of information retrieval. The study also attempts to determine the quality of information sources used by the research students and compare the information literacy competency of science and non-science students. The study implies that adequate measures have to be taken in higher educational and research institutions to equip the students with the information literacy skills even during their graduation/post-graduation period. The findings drive us to the urgency of information literacy programs to be taken up in our universities and research institutions not for one time, but rather on a continuous basis
