Our paper presents the collaborative process of integrating information literacy (IL) education into the curricula of the University of Tampere, Finland. This process occurred in the context of the latest University-wide education reform of 2010-2012. The paper discusses key factors for the success of this cooperative project and introduces the reader to the overall information literacy framework at Tampere University Library. In the reform, the objectives of the library were to offer IL education equally to all university students, to increase the use of electronic resources, and to integrate the study of information literacy as part of the competency-based curricula. IL should support students at different stages of their studies as a lifelong, academic skill.
