ACRL Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education

The ACRL Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education replaces the Competency Standards for Information Literacy, reflecting changes in the field and in student engagement with information processes. It provides us with a structure and context through which to approach our curriculum, learning objectives, and instructional practices. The Framework is built upon six core concepts, each with an associated set of knowledge practices and dispositions.

  • Authority is Constructed and Contextual
  • Information Creation as a Process
  • Information Has Value
  • Research as Inquiry
  • Scholarship as Conversation
  • Searching as Strategic Exploration

Check out the links below to learn more about the Framework and how colleagues throughout the field are using it to guide curriculum and instruction.
