ACRL Framework for Information Literacy, community of practice, information literacy, library


The information literacy universe has evolved since the release of the ACRL Information Literacy Framework, leaving some librarians feeling lost in space. Whether you view the Framework as the Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything, or see it as merely mostly harmless--building a community of practice will enable you to navigate new galaxies with confidence. Though you might feel like you’re floating in a most peculiar way, this workshop will help you grab hold of the controls, develop a plan for ongoing learning, and launch into your own Framework community of practice!
