Abstract: Due to the fact that ChatGPT tool had an immediate impact on all spheres of life, there is a need to discuss its advantages and disadvantages for information literacy (IL) education point of view. This study aims to examine viewpoints of Croatian academic librarians, research assistants and university professors on ChatGPT and its possible utilization in teaching IL. In order to achieve stated aim, authors have conducted a qualitative study using an In-Depth interview method. Respondents were selected form a purposive sample of academic librarians, teaching assistants and university professors form the University of Zadar, University of Zagreb and University of Osijek and responses were analyzed by conducting qualitative content analysis. Results have shown that the majority of the respondents is, for time being, inclined to incorporate ChatGPT into IL courses curricula. Findings of this study can be practically applied by librarians when creating new, enhanced IL courses curricula. Also, these findings should be presented to the university administrations and interpreted as an indicator of the necessary change that is needed regarding the position of librarians in the teaching process and acknowledgment of their work.
