Australian and New Zealand Information Literacy Framework: Principles, Standards and Practice
The Australian and New Zealand information literacy framework is derived, with permission, from the Association of College and Research Libraries’ (ACRL) Information literacy competency standards for higher education.
About the framework
The concepts and text have been adapted and updated to incorporate recent local and international understandings of information literacy education.
The Framework provides the principles, standards and practice that can support information literacy education in all education sectors. Information literacy in this context is generally defined as an understanding and set of abilities enabling individuals to ‘recognise when information is needed and have the capacity to locate, evaluate, and use effectively the needed information’. The Framework is a living document, which will evolve to reflect new understandings of information literacy.
