In 2015, The Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL) released the Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education to replace the information literacy standards published by the same organization in 2000.
Core concepts of the Information Literacy Framework

"Because this Framework envisions information literacy as extending the arc of learning throughout students’ academic careers and as converging with other academic and social learning goals, an expanded definition of information literacy is offered here to emphasize dynamism, flexibility, individual growth, and community learning:
The Framework opens the way for librarians, faculty, and other institutional partners to redesign instruction sessions, assignments, courses, and even curricula; to connect information literacy with student success initiatives; to collaborate on pedagogical research and involve students themselves in that research; and to create wider conversations about student learning, the scholarship of teaching and learning, and the assessment of learning on local campuses and beyond."
Both faculty and librarians provide information literacy instruction starting with the First Year Experience (FYE) course and continuing through the academic programs with integrated instruction and in-class sessions by librarians.
Please contact the library if you are interested in working with a librarian to create information literacy instruction for your course. We can come to your classroom or you can arrange to bring your class to the Library Instruction Lab (if available).
See the Getting Started with Research guide that we developed.
