The Association of College and Research Libraries Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education grows out of a belief that information literacy as an educational reform movement will realize its potential only through a richer, more complex set of core ideas. During the fifteen years since the publication of the Information Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education, academic librarians and their partners in higher education associations have developed learning outcomes, tools, and resources that some institutions have deployed to infuse information literacy concepts and skills into their curricula.
The framework addresses habits of mind and provides a new vision to address the needs of today's learners in the 21st Century. To that end, student learning outcomes for information literacy were conceived and mapped to course outcomes to provide a more meaningful frame of reference for today's learners.
