Information Literacy Policies and Standards

The International Association of University Libraries (IATUL) Special Interest Group for Information Literacy has published a report on Information Literacy Policies and Standards at IATUL Member Libraries. "The report summarizes the results of a survey conducted between July 2013 and February 2014 to examine the national information literacy standards and frameworks in 13 countries and the institutional guidelines, frameworks, and policies of 100 academic libraries."
"National" here means that some national body (generally, a working party or association of librarians) has developed a model or framework of IL for that country. The main part of the 18 page publication consists of tables listing the countries and libraries, and giving details of any publications (with links: it says the data was revised in October 2015). The report is at and the Special Interest Group website is here
