How can school media specialists, technology specialists, and academic librarians collaborate to build students’ college readiness and support lifelong information literacy learning? The development of the Association of College & Research Libraries (ACRL) Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education and the American Association of School Librarians (AASL) Standards Framework for Learners provides new opportunities for school and academic librarians to find common ground. In this session, three current and former chairs of the Minnesota Library Association Instruction Roundtable will explore connections between these two guiding documents and the ways in which they approach information literacy. Building on these connections, presenters will offer practical strategies for engaging in ongoing professional development and building communities of practice around the ACRL and AASL Frameworks.

This session will be facilitated by the creators of 23 Framework Things, an award-winning free online professional development opportunity that helps librarians engage with the ACRL Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education at their own pace through readings, activities, reflection, and discussion.
