ROLING-SALAZAR, Evangelina; OBANDO-CALDERON, Isabel; PAREDES-AREVALO, Lorena  and  CARO-MIRANDA, José. Influencia de la alfabetización en información en el uso de recursos de búsqueda de información científica por universitarios: adaptación del modelo UTAUT. Palabra clave [online]. 2022, vol.12, n.1, e164. ISSN 1853-9912.

The objective of this study is to analyze the factors that influence the behavior of use of information search and retrieval resources in the teaching-learning process, by 320 university students nationwide from a private university in Chile. The methodology is located in a non-experimental design, quantitative approach, descriptive, correlational and cross-sectional. The proposed model is based on the unified theory of acceptance and use of technology. The analyzes in the Smart-PLS software support that the research model presents a favorable validity and reliability of the measurement scales and an adequate global adjustment. The greatest finding is the influence of information literacy as a facilitating condition for the use of scientific information search resources by university students with careers in the Health area at the national level.

Keywords : Information literacy; UTAUT model; Information search resources; University students; Chile.
