SCONUL 7 Pillars of Information Literacy

Once in a while it's worth highlighting existing resources. There are links to the current version of the SCONUL 7 Pillars of Information Literacy, of the "lenses" that have been developed (e.g. Employability lens), an evaluation of the use of the model, and the original (1999) model at
Also worth mentioning are:
- Dalton, M. (2013). Developing an evidence-based practice healthcare lens for the SCONUL Seven Pillars of Information Literacy model. Journal of Information Literacy, 7(1), 30-43. (this isn't one of the "official" lens, so isn't mentioned on the page above) and
- Lockerbie, H. and Williams, D. (2019). Seven pillars and five minds: small business workplace information literacy. Journal of Documentation,75(5), 977-994. - open access version here (an interesting recent application of the Pillars to a non-academic setting)
