[CfP] C&RL News "Perspectives on the Framework" Column

    Call for Proposals: C&RL News "Perspectives on the Framework" Column - due December 20

    College & Research Libraries News and ACRL's Student Learning and Information Literacy Committee invite your proposals for the publication's "Perspectives on the Framework" column. This bimonthly column provides a forum for librarians to share practices and perspectives related to the Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education. 

    Now that the Framework has been part of academic librarians' work for nearly a decade, we are interested in how the Framework has shaped your pedagogical practices and how, in turn, your experience has shaped your views of the Framework. For example, how do your own identities, and/or your work with diverse and underserved populations, inform your understanding, use, or critiques of the Framework? Alternatively, you might consider how the Framework relates to the challenges and opportunities posed by online learning, shifting political landscapes, challenges to intellectual freedom, and advancements in artificial intelligence, for example. The format is flexible: past columns have shared Framework-based lessons, proposed changes to the Framework, analyzed a practice through the lens of a particular frame, and more. Columns are limited to 2,000 words.

    About the Publication

    Established in 1966, College & Research Libraries News serves as the official newsmagazine and publication of record of the Association of College and Research Libraries. It is an online-only, open-access publication.

    This column is managed and edited by a subcommittee of the ACRL Student Learning and Information Literacy Committee (SLILC). Past columns may be found by searching the College & Research Libraries News archive.

    Submission Guidelines

    Please submit a 100-word proposal that outlines your column's intended contribution to this dialogue via Google Form. We will be doing a rolling review of submissions through December 20, 2023. We welcome first-time authors.
