ACRL Information Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education Task Force

Charge

Update the Information literacy competency standards for higher education so that they reflect the current thinking on such things as the creation and dissemination of knowledge, the changing global higher education and learning environment, the shift from information literacy to information fluency, and the expanding definition of information literacy to include multiple literacies, e.g., transliteracy, media literacy, digital literacy, etc.


Review the recommendations of the Information Literacy Competency Standards Review Task Force, collect feedback from the ACRL membership and the broad constituencies within the higher education community, e.g., faculty, accreditors, library and information science educators, and  administrators regarding these recommendations, revise and extensively update the Standards accordingly, soliciting comments on drafts of the new document from the same broad constituencies mentioned above, prior to seeking approval from ILSC and the ACRL Board.
