Reimagining Information Literacy Competencies
by Barbie E. Keiser
ACRL completed the final document of a new Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education, which its task force will submit to ACRL's board of directors at its October meeting. Much has changed since ACRL formally adopted the Information Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education in 2000, including the nature of higher education and the responsibility of academic institutions; approaches to learning, pedagogy, and scholarly communication; advances in IT and its ubiquitous use, as well as the globalized information environment; and recognition of the student as a knowledge creator (in addition to a user) and the diversity of formats in which these students create new knowledge (e.g., print and multimedia).

The newest available format for patrons is streaming video, which is quickly gaining traction in public libraries across the country. Several librarians shared their experiences with streaming video lending, so institutions thinking about implementing their own programs know what to expect.
