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
