"Information literacy is the set of integrated abilities encompassing the reflective discovery of information, the understanding of how information is produced and valued, and the use of information in creating new knowledge and participating ethically in communities of learning." -Association of College and Research Libraries (2016)
In 2016, The Association of College & Research Libraries (ACRL) introduced a new Framework for Information Literacy in Higher Education. The Framework is intended as a guiding document for the teaching of information literacy skills and concepts in higher education while providing flexibility for interpretation and implementation at the local level to meet the needs of individual institutions. You can download a full copy of the Framework by clicking here.
For more information on how the Framework is applied at MWCC, please see "Information Literacy @ MWCC" below, and checkout these resources specifically geared for faculty:
