INFORMATION LITERACY FRAMEWORK (ACRL)

INFORMATION LITERACY FRAMEWORK
(Association of College and Research Libraries, 2015)

Threshold Concepts

  • Authority Is Constructed and Contextual  Different information needs require different types of expertise and authority
  • Information Creation as a Process  Format, the process that goes into creating a source
  • Information Has Value  Citation and plagiarism.  Standards of citations, acknowledgement in different contexts and  cultures.  Media & the publishing industry.  Influence.  Access to information, the digital divide and social justice themes.
  • Research as Inquiry  Research is iterative.  Research can take place outside of academia.  What information research skills will you need in your career?
  • Scholarship as Conversation  Answers to research are not final, research is an ongoing conversation.  How are the places where this conversation takes place changing?  How can you particpate in this conversation?
  • Searching as Strategic Exploration  Research is exploration, it is meandering, it is messy.  But good researchers are strategic.
