The paper will examine how new information and educational environments are build in an EU candidate country, Croatia, and whether information literacy is an integral element of the launched strategies and reformal efforts. A crucial element for the intended transformations is the educational sector, which is thriving for curricula modifications, but also for reconceptualizations of pedagogical processes with a focus on student-centeredness and the quality of education. The authors will investigate information literacy perceptions in the Croatian school library environment, specifically in relation to computer literacy, and the actual current state of influence of libraries on the creation of constructivist classrooms.
