The Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL), a division of the American Library Association, is in the process of creating a revised Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education. In the past, information literacy has been defined as a set of abilities that students use to determine what information they need and then locate, access, and evaluate this information. ACRL has expanded this definition in their new framework, which includes “concepts about the information ecosystem; practices for increasing expertise within it; particular ways of thinking about it and behaving within it; and general strategies for learning from it.”
The concept of information literacy encompasses a range of practices that we all hope our students will carry forward for the rest of their lives as scholars and citizens in the world.
In this conversation, come learn about this framework, its components, why you should consider implementing its concepts into your syllabus, and strategies for integration.
