The Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education (2015), is among the guiding documents about information literacy developed by the Association of College & Research Libraries (ACRL). The Framework is organized into six frames, each outlining a concept central to information literacy.
Adopt a Common Language
Librarians, like teaching faculty, aspire to teach students to find, interpret, and produce information that is valued in academia.
Together, we can do so by exposing students to six frames of understanding in the introductory, practicing, and mastery level courses that you teach.

Information Has Value: Legal and socioeconomic interests influence information gathering and distribution.
Research as Inquiry: Each question in the research process builds on the previous one and paves way for the next.
