Faculty-Librarian Collaborations: Integrating the Information Literacy Framework into Disciplinary Courses

In late 2015, we presented a three-hour workshop on the nascent ACRL Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education at the European Conference on Information Literacy (ECIL) in Tallinn, Estonia,1 after which we were approached about preparing a more in-depth learning experience on the Framework for a group of international librarians. These librarians were part of the AMICAL Consortium, a consortium of twenty-nine liberal arts institutions in Europe, Asia, and Africa. At this point, we had already led several active learning–filled workshops on the Framework, including the one at ECIL. We were also working on a coedited book on the Framework, which would eventually be published as Disciplinary Applications of Information Literacy Threshold Concepts. 2 Through these projects, we had met librarians from across the United States and throughout the world who were eager to engage more deeply with the Framework and the concepts it contains. Although other information literacy standards and guidelines exist and are used widely in international contexts, we had direct experience with international librarians who, like their American counterparts, were struggling with how to transition into working with the Framework.
