Rethinking ACRL’s Information Literacy Standards: The Process Begins

Rethinking ACRL’s Information Literacy Standards: The Process Begins | Digital literacies and assessment | 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.

ast week saw the announcement of the new Visual Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education by the (US) Association of College & Research Libraries (ACRL). They define Visual Literacy (VL) as "a set of abilities that enables an individual to effectively find, interpret, evaluate, use, and create images and visual media". The VL Standards include: an introduction & definition; brief discussions of VL as it relates to higher education and to information literacy; "suggestions for implementing the Standards"; a bibliography, and, obviously, the standards themselves.

Project SAILS is a knowledge test with multiple-choice questions targeting a variety of information literacy skills. These test items are based on the ACRL Information Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education. SAILS offers both a cohort test for comparing groups of students and an individual test. These tests are meant for students enrolled in institutions of higher education. With the SAILS information literacy assessment faculty, librarians, and administrators can document skill levels for groups of students and pinpoint areas for improvement.
