, Framework for Information Literacy in Higher Education.
While discussions of ACRL
IL standards are relevant to general academic librarians, health sciences librarians often work outside ACRL
directives because they are obligated to follow discipline-specific accreditation standards and learning objectives.
's Information Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education (the Standards) represents the organisation's first attempt at national information literacy standards, and were approved by the ACRL
Board in 2000.
From David McCandless' opening keynote speech on data visualization to Carla Hayden's visionary closing speech on becoming the 14th Librarian of Congress and the importance of libraries in civil society, the ACRL
conference was filled with enthusiastic librarians sharing their expertise and experiences.
In comparison to Sittler and Cook's Library Instruction Cookbook (2009), recipe learning objectives in The Embedded Librarian's Cookbook are not tied to specific ACRL
Information Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education, and may provide a timely and unique opportunity to rethink existing instructional activities, learning outcomes, points of service, and outreach in context with the emerging ACRL
Framework that will replace the existing standards in the near future ("Framework for Information Literacy," 2013).
Finally, we need to leverage and use existing ACRL
resources in library value projects.

The degree to which each facet is implemented also varies and further complicates the issue of how well the ACRL
standards are being met.

The Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL
) defines information literacy as "a set of abilities requiring individuals to recognize when information is needed and have the ability to locate, evaluate, and use effectively the needed information." (1) ACRL
has also set the standard within academic librarianship; its set of information literacy guidelines has been widely accepted as the best teaching tool for library educators.
Authors define the term, explain its history with three professional organizations, and describe processes for engaging the faculty in grasping the range to ACRL
[Association of College and Research Libraries] Standards, performance indicators, and outcomes.
's standards for information literacy provide a solid foundation to help faculty and librarians establish the context for learning.
