The Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL) revised the Information Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education to address changes to the informational climate. This new Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education focuses on six threshold concepts, ideals to serve as "passageways or portals to enlarged understanding or ways of thinking and practicing within that discipline."
This LibGuide will bring together the latest information on the Framework, as well as shared material from PALNI member libraries in using the existing Standards and developing Framework.
PALNI is a non-profit organization supporting collaboration for library and information services to the libraries of its supported institutions in Indiana. Over time, the library deans and directors who sit on the PALNI board have adjusted the organization’s strategic direction as the internet and information services landscape have changed. PALNI has expanded beyond providing a resource management system to sharing expertise in many areas including strategic planning, reference, information fluency, outreach, data management and configuration, and has identified greater collaboration in acquisitions as a key goal.
