(4 April 2014) ACRL’s Information Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education Task Force has released the second part of their initial draft of the association’s Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education.
The Information Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education, adopted by ACRL in 2000, have become an essential document related to the emergence of information literacy as a recognized learning outcome at many institutions of higher education. These, like all ACRL standards, are reviewed cyclically. In June 2012, the ACRL Board of Directors approved a unanimous recommendation that they be a significantly revised. A task force charged with creating the Framework has been working since March 2013.
Feedback on the draft is welcome. Read the complete announcement.
