IL in the Disciplines Committee

Charge:
To gather and promote information literacy standards and curricula developed by accrediting agencies, professional associations, and institutions of higher education. The Committee publishes this information on its Information Literacy in the Disciplines Guide within the ACRL Web site. The Committee reviews and updates the Guide at least annually and considers users’ suggestions for materials to include, basing its decisions on the criteria for inclusion for the project.

Annual Planning: 
View planning documents such as annual goals, measuring success reports, or annual reports by selecting the appropriate report from the IS Archive.
