Out With The Old, In With The New: Practical Strategies for Using the New ACRL Framework

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

In 2016 the Association of College and Research Libraries adopted the new Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education. The Framework represents a striking shift from the previous ACRL Standards. The Framework attempts to provide conceptual grounding for information literacy, and as such, it’s more philosophical and less concrete. For theological librarians, the more philosophical Framework offers exceptionally good integration points with our classroom contexts.

Karl Stutzman (Anabaptist Mennonite Biblical Seminary) and Matthew Thiesen (Western Seminary) have designed and delivered instructional activities using the Framework that fit their institutions’ unique curricula and perspectives. They will share strategies and experiences as well as invite conversation about how the Framework can be implemented in theological and religiously-affiliated academic libraries.
