Academic Librarianship: Complete Archive of College & Research Libraries Now Freely Available Online (1939-Present Issue)

Academic Librarianship: Complete Archive of College & Research Libraries Now Freely Available Online (1939-Present Issue) | Info... Trends... Librarianship... | Scoop.it

The online C&RL archive now contains the complete contents of the journal from its beginnings in 1939 through the current issue.

 

C&RL archival contents from 1939 through 1996 were digitized through the generous volunteer efforts of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Library. The library’s Digital Content Creation department performed scanning and metadata creation for the approximately 340 back file issues of the journal in 2011 and 2012. The digitized files were added to the journal’s online presence with the financial assistance of the ACRL Friends Fund.

 

C&RL will become an online-only publication in Jan. 2014.

Seven Faces of Information Literacy in Higher Education | Christine Bruce | Info... Trends... Librarianship... | Scoop.it

Information literacy is usually described as the ability to locate, manage and use information effectively for a range of purposes. As such it is an important ´generic skill´ which allows people to engage in effective decision–making, problem solving a nd research. It also enables them to take responsibility for their own continued learning in areas of personal or professional interest.

Rethinking ACRL’s Information Literacy Standards: The Process Begins

Rethinking ACRL’s Information Literacy Standards: The Process Begins | Info... Trends... Librarianship... | Scoop.it

ACRL’s Information Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education (“the Standards”) were first adopted in 2000. Since then the Standards have become one of, if not the most essential document, related to the emergence of information literacy as a recognized learning outcome at many institutions of higher education. In the vast collection of research and writings about information literacy, the Standards are cited thousands of times. Put simply, ACRL’s Standards are the de facto definition of information literacy. Though they have served the academic library profession well over the past thirteen years, the current standards are showing their age. It is time for our association to engage in a process to rethink and reimagine them for the next generation of academic librarians, college students and the faculty.
