Community college librarians and the ACRL Framework #infolit #ACRLframework

There is a preprint available of an article due to be published in College and Research Libraries. It presents the results of a survey of North American Community College librarians, about their engagement with the ACRL IL Framework. "This study explored community college librarians’ engagement with the Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education. A national online survey with 1,201 community college librarian respondents reveals limited familiarity with and integration of the Framework into community college instruction to date. Findings indicate an openness to future adoption, as well as substantial interest in targeted professional development and a version of the Framework adapted for community college campuses. These results contribute benchmark instructional data on an understudied section of academic librarianship and add to the growing body of research on how librarians have updated teaching practices in response to the Framework."
