ACRL release part two of draft Framework for Information Literacy Standards

The Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL) has now released the second part of a draft Framework for Information Literacy in Higher Education, which is intended to replace the Information Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education (ILCSHE) that were adopted by ACRL in 2000.

Part one was made available in February 2014. The second part of the draft framework includes two additional threshold concepts.

ACRL is welcoming feedback on both parts of the document until 15th April 2014. You also have the opportunity to participate in two online open forums that are taking place in early April. Registration is required in advance.

ACRL will make revisions as a result of the feedback received, and will release a second draft of the framework in early June.

More information on the new framework, including the draft documents, is available from the ACRL website.
