ACRL Framework for Information Literacy Toolkit Launches

The following update is cross-posted at ACRL Insider.

The ACRL Framework Advisory Board (FAB) is pleased to announce the launch of the ACRL Framework for Information Literacy Toolkit. The ACRL Framework for Information Literacy Toolkit is intended as a freely available professional development resource that can be used and adapted by both individuals and groups in order to foster understanding and use of the ACRL Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education. The ACRL Framework Toolkit is available on the ACRL LibGuides site.

Librarians can use the ACRL Framework Toolkit resources in a variety of ways:  for their individual professional development needs; to form a community of practice with their colleagues around the Framework and information literacy; and to develop workshops and professional development opportunities in their libraries and also for local, regional, and state-level events and conferences.

The ACRL Framework Toolkit contains four modules: Finding Time to Engage the Framework, The Framework’s Structure, Foundations of the Framework, and Strategies for Using the Framework. A fifth module, Collaboration and Conversations with the Framework, is currently in development.  Each module includes essential questions, learning outcomes, and active learning resources such as guided reading activities, discussion prompts, and lists of key readings.
