ACRL Framework for Information Literacy, information literacy, library, instruction, professional development


ACRL released the new Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education in 2015, and since then librarians nationwide have been seeking support and resources for how to implement these new best practices at their institution and in their teaching practice. MLA's Instruction RoundTable (IRT) responded by creating 23 Framework Things (, an online professional development opportunity that helps Minnesota librarians learn about the Framework, engage with it through activities, earn prizes/badges, and share strategies with an emerging community of practice. This session will feature a showcase of librarians from different types of academic institutions, large and small, sharing how they have engaged with the Framework though their participation in 23 Framework Things. Come to learn and leave inspired by Minnesota librarians on the cutting edge of information literacy instruction.
