Webinar: Connecting Justice to Frameworks: Information Literacy in Social Work
There is another interesting free ACRL webinar: Connecting Justice to Frameworks: Information Literacy in Social Work on May 21 2020 at 10am US Central time, which is e.g. 4pm UK time. "Standards, frameworks, and guidelines help us define and describe the work we do to ourselves and to external stakeholders. If budget decisions tell us what our priorities are, documents like the Framework for Information Literacy in Higher Education tell us what they should be. Integrating social justice into these documents can serve as a platform for directing attention and resources to our commitments around equity, diversity, and inclusion. The EBSS Social Work Committee has been hard at work developing an information literacy disciplinary framework that does just that. Join this committee and the Information Literacy Standards and Frameworks Committee to learn about this project. Participants will come away with concrete strategies for integrating social justice efforts with standards work."
