Abstract (Document Summary)

ACRL completed the final document of a new Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education, which its task force will submit to ACRL's board of directors at its October meeting. The new framework seeks to address the interconnected nature of a student's abilities, moving away from the hierarchical and formulaic approach of the current standards. It views information literacy as "a repertoire of understandings, practices, and dispositions focused on flexible engagement with the information ecosystem, underpinned by critical self-reflection." As librarians create strategies for implementation, they can view the framework as a new way to understand the information literacy efforts already underway; as a provider of new language and concepts to communicate what is being done, why, and how; and as a process through which to transform the goals set for information literacy instruction and programs. Final edits continue to review the framework's language for clarity and for its connection to content creation and varied forms of information.
