Call for Participation: Survey on Potential Revisions to the Information Literacy Competency Standards for Nursing

(via Laureen Cantwell, Colorado Mesa University)

As you may or may not be aware, the Information Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education (“the Standards”) was replaced by the Framework for Information Literacy in Higher Education (“the Framework”) in 2015.

This means that the Information Literacy Competency Standards for Nursing, established in 2013, is in need of revision to align with the Framework.

Our intended audience is librarians, especially those connected with information literacy (IL) instruction for Nursing and the Health Sciences. We are seeking information on how you’ve been using the ACRL Framework thus far in instructional sessions/contexts for Nursing and the Health Sciences. We are also capturing information on instructional technologies as connected to this topic and whether you would be interested in seeing the draft of the Framework for IL in Higher Ed in Nursing when it’s ready.

Prospective participants can access the survey through this link.
