The following update is cross-posted at ACRL Insider.

Priority projects for this year include the launch and promotion of the Framework “Sandbox” repository, collaboration with the new Framework Curriculum Designer/Presenter team, and the introduction of the Framework Toolkit as a locally tailored professional development tool.
