Implementing the Information Literacy Framework: A Practical Guide for Librarians is written with three types of people in mind: librarians, classroom educators, and students. This book and its website address the implementation of the Association of College and Research Libraries’ Framework of Information Literacy in Higher Education. One of the few books written jointly by an academic librarian and a classroom faculty member, Implementing the Information Literacy Framework packs dozens of how-to ideas and strategies into ten chapters specifically intended for librarians and classroom instructors. If you have been waiting for a no-nonsense, carefully explained, yet practical source for implementing the Framework, this book is for you, your colleagues, and your students, all in the context of a discipline-specific, equal collaboration between the library liaison and classroom educator. Implementing the Information Literacy Framework gives you the tools and strategies to put into practice a host of Framework-based information literacy experiences for students and faculty, creating a campus culture that understands and integrates information literacy into its educational mission.

Librarians must know how to provide essential programs and services that make a difference for the people they serve if libraries are going to survive. Meeting Community Needs: A Practical Guide for Librarians shows librarians how to identify real needs, how to meet them with effective services and programs, and how to evaluate their success. When librarians can demonstrate the impact that effective library programs and services have on people’s lives, their confidence and ability to argue that libraries are more than “unessential” or “ancillary” services will be strengthened.
