Information literacy is the discipline that shapes the informational behavior of young students, Master and PhD students. The skills acquired by attending this course can decisively influence thinking and may generate critical thinking for analyzing information. Extending the module designed for achieving Information Literacy standards, we present a module on green practices, green libraries and the implications of using electronic resources on carbon emissions and consumption of electricity. Our premise was that these concepts may help develop sustainable thinking, in addition to critical thinking. In this paper we will focus mainly on the green information literacy aspect, through a study from Transilvania University of Brasov.
