Revised Status of Academic Librarians Standards

The ACRL Board of Directors approved revised versions of the association’s A Standard for the Appointment, Promotion and Tenure of Academic Librarians; ACRL Standards for Academic Librarians without Faculty Status; and ACRL Standards for Faculty for Academic Librarians in April 2021. Revised by the ACRL Status of Academic Librarians Standards and Guidelines Review Task Force, the new versions of the standards bring the documents in line with current practice for librarians with and without faculty status, and for appointment, promotion and tenure decisions of all academic librarians.

The revised documents are freely available in the Standards, Guidelines, and Frameworks section of the ACRL website.
