About Info Lit

Information literacy is the set of integrated abilities encompassing the reflective discovery of information, the understanding of how information is produced and valued, and the use of information in creating new knowledge and participating ethically in communities of learning.

(Association of College and Research Libraries, 2015)

ACRL Framework

The principle framework for Information Literacy was developed by the Association of College and Research Libraries.  The framework consists of six main components:

1.  Authority is Constructed and Contextual
2.  Information Creation as Process
3.  Information Has Value
4.  Research as Inquiry
5.  Scholarship as Conversation
6.  Searching as Strategic Exploration

The framework is also adaptable to dynamic learning environments where new methods of research and scholarly communication are being developed.  While the framework recognizes the value of traditional formats like print media, for example, it can also anticipate newer developments like online supplements to print where data that are used and produced during research are more accessible; and also newer methods of scholarly communication such as weblogs, video and other formats.
