AASL/ACRL Interdivisional Committee on Information Literacy Meeting Minutes, June 30, 2013

 

Present: S. Mandernack, L. Farmer, K. Dobda, J. Fabbi, G. Jackson-Brown, M. Keeling, C. Schmidt, K. Stewart

 

The meeting was convened at 1:05pm by Lesley Farmer and Scott Mandernack (Hyatt Regency Chicago).

Committee members introduced themselves, and incoming member Grace Jackson-Brown was welcomed. Jen Fabbi is incoming co-chair (ACRL). Lesley will ask AASL who their co-chair selectee is. Outgoing members – Kathy, Lesley and Scott – were thanked for their work.

The agenda and minutes were approved as written.

Lesley shared updates about ALA/ACRL.

  • ACRL is revising their information literacy standards, and Lesley is on the task force. Our committee members are encouraged to provide input.
  • UNESCO is developing a publication of core information literacy resources by country. Lesley is co-chairing the U.S. task force, and is encouraging our committee members are encouraged to provide input within the month.
  • The NSSE (National Survey of Student Engagement) includes four questions about library engagement; the questions will be provided as an optional module.
  • AASL continues to offer L4L documents. AASL is also examining senior high school student capstone research activities.

The Information Literacy Toolkit needs more content, particularly for transition efforts and policies/programs. Resources can be in the form of a document or URL; a brief annotation can be added for clarification. All members need to contribute to the website: http://aaslacrlinfolittoolkit.wikispaces.com/ for it to be approved at the mid-winter meeting. Pages were renamed. Lesley will continue to coordinate the toolkit. Cynthia will create a suggestion form, which the committee will review; this form can help keep the site current. The coordinating committee will be asked about website transference to an ALA site.

The 2013 conference proposal “Meeting of the Minds: How Information Literacy Links Common Core and General Education Standards” was not accepted by ACRL or AASL, partly because of unit communication issues; EBSS had a program session for 2014 that fit this committee’s charge (and wasn’t communicated to the committee until May). The committee wants to propose a program session for 2014: Common Core and General Education: Information Literacy connects the dots.” “This session maps information literacy onto the Common Core State Standards and the AACU essential learning outcomes, and discusses how librarians can support these standards through information literacy instruction.” Jen will be the point person for the session proposal. The deadline is probably Oct. 1.

 The committee will recommend to the Student Learning and Information Literacy committee to create a position paper about the importance of college-ready students, and the need for school librarians in order to facilitate student competence.

A proposal for new content in the Information Literacy Immersion Program that focuses on the high school – college transition will be explored.  Jen will contact the chair of the Immersion Program committee to inquire about the process.

Jason Dupree continues as listserv administrator; his term is up for renewal next year.

Lesley submitted the committee annual report for AASL and Scott will submit a report to ACRL.

The meeting was adjourned at 2:45pm.

AASL/ACRL Interdivisional Committee on Information Literacy Meeting Minutes June 24, 2012

 

Present: S. Mandernack, L. Farmer, P. Boruff-Jones, K. Dobda, J. Fabbi, L. Roberts

 

The meeting was convened at 1:35 pm by Lesley Farmer (Paradise Hotel, Safari Room).

Committee members introduced themselves, and incoming member Jennifer Fabbi (UN Las Vegas) was welcomed.

The agenda and minutes were approved as written.

The 2012 program session was very successful, with a SRO audience of over 400 attendees. Lydia Smith-Davis represented private K12 schools and an information literacy organization, Lynn Lampert represented higher ed, and John McGinnis represented school boards and community colleges. Lesley moderated. Cognotes gave the session a positive write-up.

The 2013 conference proposal “ Meeting of the Minds: How Information Literacy Links Common Core and General Education Standards” was not accepted by ACRL because the number of programs had to be severely limited. Lesley contacted AASL, but has not heard back from them.  AASL and the University of Wisconsin-Madison have good content on the Common Core.

Jason Dupree was selected from a strong pool of seven applicants to serve as the new INFOLIT-L listserv administrator. Jason will serve a two-year term on the committee.  Scott will check on the AASL listserv status (Melissa Wong is listed as the moderator).

The Information Literacy Toolkit needs much more content. Jennifer will check the ALA program for possible links/content. All members need to contribute to the website: http://aaslacrlinfolittoolkit.wikispaces.com/   Lesley will re-invite the committee members.

Scott shared updates about ALA/ACRL.

  • The ALA Council approved the resolution to support school libraries, which the Interdivisional committee endorsed and supported.
  • ACRL is exploring the idea of revising their information literacy standards.
  • Future ALA conferences will be more streamlined, and all programs will be held in the same facility, thereby limiting the number of programs that can be held.
  • The PRIMO database is being replaced/improved.
  • The Information Literacy coordinating meeting is renamed the Student Learning committee, which has a broader scope. Our committee needs to review its charge, accordingly.

The meeting was adjourned at 3:15pm.
