A lecturer needs to find the required information, evaluate and use information literacy wisely. This research applied a case study using online questionnaire. The main instrument in this study was based on the Association of College & Research Libraries (ACRL) standard entails that research subjects are expected to find out more than just how to obtain information. Research subjects also understand the limitations of data usage, and they know how to organize the information. This study explores the impact of lecturers' literacy on information technology and research results in the International Journal. The lecturers’ literacy on information technology was described and interpreted by finding out the highest frequency linked with the publication of research results conducted through previous literature studies. Lecturers’ literacy on information technology in this study is concluded as good. Informants can determine the nature and scope of the information needed. Research subjects have sufficient skills in accessing the required information effectively and efficiently. Research subjects understand the importance of critically evaluating information and its sources and incorporating selected information into a knowledge base and value system. Individually or as members of a group, informants can use information effectively to fulfill certain objectives. The researchers recommend that senior lecturers investigate and build stronger information literacy skills in order to improve the amount and quality of research results published.
