New Draft of Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education

Association of College and Research Libraries – Draft Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education, February 2014 [snipped]

“Introduction. The changes in higher education, coupled with a more complex information ecosystem than  existed at the end of the last century, demand new engagement with the concept of information literacy. This Introduction explores the reasons for the dramatic shift from standards to a framework; discusses the key elements upon which the new Framework rests, threshold concepts and metaliteracy; and includes the components of the Framework that help to move it from a conceptual rendering to a full-fledged, living entity upon which to develop collaborative  programs suitable for unique situations. The concluding section acknowledges the stakeholders and community who are engaged in this conversation.”
