An Information Literacy Research Process Model (ILRPM) is developed to explain the trainees’ behaviour of information literacy seeking skills in accessing, evaluating and applying their needed information when conducting their research process. The scope of study is based on full-time final year undergraduate trainee teachers for the Educational Degree Programme in Kedah, Perlis and Penang, who are required to conduct their school based action research final project paper.
