Information Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education

Information Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education
The Information Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education (originally approved in 2000) were rescinded by the ACRL Board of Directors on June 25, 2016, at the 2016 ALA Annual Conference in Orlando, Florida, which means they are no longer in force. This document (and the PDF) will remain on the website until July 1, 2017 to allow for the transition to the Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education. ACRL is developing resources to assist librarians in using the Framework.

Copyright & Fair Use - Fair Use Fair use is a copyright principle based on the belief that the public is entitled to freely use portions of copyrighted materials for purposes of commentary and criticism. For example, if you wish to criticize a novelist, you should have the freedom to quote a portion of the novelist’s work without asking permission. Absent this freedom, copyright owners could stifle any negative comments about their work. Unfortunately, if the copyright owner disagrees with your fair use interpretation, the dispute may have to be resolved by a lawsuit or arbitration. If it’s not a fair use, then you are infringing upon the rights of the copyright owner and may be liable for damages.

Educator’s Guides Developing students' digital literacy The issue Even today’s students need support with some areas of digital practice, particularly in an academic context, so it’s important to make sure that these needs are met. While employability is an obvious driver, developing learners who can learn and thrive in a digital society is a key role for universities and colleges. We define digital literacies as the capabilities which fit someone for living, learning and working in a digital society. To help with thinking about this, we have outlined six elements for consideration, which can be seen in the following diagram.

S.O.S. for Information Literacy The goal of this lesson plan is to motivate 2nd grade readers to share knowledge and opinions about books they have read and encourage them to sample new books and authors. Students will be able to give pertinent information about a book they have read. They will utilize a planning worksheet to script a booktalk, and technology to record and access a podcast of the booktalk. Finally, students will complete a self evaluation to assess their own performance. TL launches Booktalk unit during a scheduled library class. TL asks students “What do you think a booktalk might be?”

Teaching with the Library of Congress Stop-action photography has become an integral part of our lives. It allows us to watch the beauty of a dancer, the grace of an athlete or the motion of an animal one frame at a time.
