Many of you are familiar with the Information Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education, first adopted in 2000 by the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL). These standards – which have defined information literacy for librarians, educators, and assessment agencies – are undergoing extensive revision. A task force is working on a new approach that underscores the critical need for faculty members and librarians to collaborate to effectively address information literacy education that aligns with disciplinary content. While the exact approach is still under discussion, two new elements will be incorporated: threshold concepts and metaliteracy. These two foundational elements should provide the basis for more sustained collaborations with disciplinary faculty and create more aligned teaching and learning communities at the institutional level.
