Members of this group may be familiar with the Association of College and Research Libraries’ (ACRL) Information Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education in 2000. Frequently, as you know, information literacy has been combined with English or writing courses. The ACRL Board of Directors has appointed a task force to significantly revise the standards in order to address the changing information climate and information needs of students.
ACRL recently announced that a draft Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education is available for review and feedback, due July 15. Online hearings will be held July 7 and 11 for all stakeholders to learn more about the direction the task force is taking and, most importantly, to share their input, reactions, and questions. Please see more in the full press release at http://www.acrl.ala.org/acrlinsider/archives/8911.
