Framework Spotlight on Scholarship: Monograph Round-up

This week’s Spotlight on Scholarship offers something a bit different: a round-up of recently published monographs that offer studies, essays, and creative approaches to the Framework.

As we find ourselves in a season of gift-giving, consider giving one of the following books to your favorite librarian, faculty collaborator, or library; full information about each book, including description, table of contents, and how to order, can be found at each link:

The Future Scholar: Researching and Teaching the Frameworks for Writing and Information LiteracyEdited by James P. Purdy and Randall McClure, Information Today, Inc., 2016

Rewired: Research-Writing Partnerships within the FrameworksEdited by Randall McClure, ACRL, 2016

Teaching Information Literacy through Short StoriesBy David Brier and Vickery Kaye Lebbin, Rowman & Littlefield Publishers, 2016

Information Literacy and Writing Studies in Conversation: Reenvisioning Library-Writing Program ConnectionsBy Andrea Baer, Library Juice Press, 2016

Information Literacy: Research and Collaboration across Disciplines (pre-print format, openly accessible online), Edited by Barbara J. D’Angelo, Sandra Jamieson, Barry Maid, and Janice R. Walker, The WAC Clearinghouse and University Press of Colorado, 2016

Also, if you haven’t done so yet, come explore the new ACRL Framework for Information Literacy Sandbox, a platform and repository for sharing Framework-related instruction and professional development materials.

After this post, the Spotlight on Scholarship will be on hiatus through the holidays, with hopes of returning some time after the new year.

Wishing you all a happy and healthy holiday season!

The “Framework Spotlight on Scholarship” column is a regular post series highlighting scholarship that uses, builds on, critiques, or responds to the Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education.
