Information literacy programmes best practices

The Association of College and Research Libraries' Information Literacy Best Practices Committee "is looking for information literacy programs that are exemplary in any of the categories outlined in Characteristics of Programs of Information Literacy that Illustrate Best Practices: A Guideline. Programs that are found by the Committee to be exemplary will be listed on the IS-ILBP website as exemplars for other programs seeking to follow best practices." The deadline for applications is April 30, 2014. There are 10 categories in the "best practice" guidelines (e.g. planning, staffing, pedagogy, outreach) and you have to describe how you think your institution is exemplary in each category in 500 words, including links to relevant evidence. It doesn't say on the website that you have to be in the USA to apply (but I haven't checked up on this otherwise). More info at
