information literacy, standards, Association for College and Research Libraries


The Association for College and Research Libraries (ACRL) information literacy standards are currently under revision. As a result, several new concepts have been introduced that will no doubt impact information literacy across the United States. What do librarians understand about the new ACRL Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education (2014) that is being developed for application in academia? How will the new Framework (2014), the revision to ACRL Standards (2000), impact the way librarians structure and teach their information literacy classes? This paper summarizes the revisions that have been made up until the last ACRL recommendations draft from June 2, 2014 and comments on librarian concerns with the revisions and their probable impact on the information literacy classroom.
