ACRL Framework for Information Literacy

The Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education, published by the Association of College & Research Libraries in 2015, helps conceptualize information literacy into six frames or core concepts. These frames form a structure which helps students know when and what kind of information is needed, where and how to find that information, and how to responsibly and ethically utilize information once discovered.

The ACRL Information Literacy Frames are:

-Authority is constructed and contextual

-Information creation as a process

-Information has value

-Research as inquiry

-Scholarship as conversation

-Searching as strategic exploration
