The ACRL Framework

Introduction

​​

This guide is an instructional tool for communicating to faculty at the University of Arkansas about the ACRL Information Literacy Framework, what it is, what they need to know about it, and how they can work with their liaison librarians to build assignments and ideas of engaging their students in information literacy.

While this guide strives to be a resource, it is not exhaustive. If you have an idea of something you'd like to see here or how to improve this guide? Get in touch!

Framework Overview

“A threshold concept can be considered as akin to a portal, opening up a new and previously inaccessible way of thinking about something.”

- Jan Meyer & Ray Land
