  • SC charge – “responsible for overseeing the development of standards, guidelines and frameworks adopted and promoted by the Association”

    • SC recommends new standards, guidelines or framework as needed

    • SC assists units of ACRL in developing standards, guidelines and frameworks and related documents

    • SC recommends to the ACRL Board the acceptability of proposed standards, guidelines, frameworks and related documents

    • SC guides and monitors the solicitation of member comment on ACRL standards, guidelines, and frameworks through email distribution lists (listservs) before they are recommended to the ACRL Board




 



  • Procedures

    • SC fulfills its charge by ensuring every standard, guideline, framework document and policy statement approved by ACRL is reviewed every five years

    • SC assigns a liaison to the ACRL committee or section that is responsible for the preparation or review of the standard, guideline, or other statement.  Members of the ILFSC are assigned to groups developing information literacy framework documents or standards.  The liaisons respond to questions, attend meetings of the committee or section as needed, and provide support through the process of preparation or review of the standard, guideline or framework document.  SC liaisons may contact the SC Chair as needed for additional guidance

    • Standards, guidelines or framework documents for approval or review are submitted to the SC chair.  The document must be accompanied by the SCTransmittal Form following steps listed on the Transmittal Form, and adding the date when each step is completed.  Careful record keeping assists the originating unit, SC, and ACRL Board

    • Upon receipt of a final draft of a standard, guideline, or framework document, and after a final review in relation to current ACRL standards, guidelines, and frameworks, SC recommends acceptance or non-acceptance of the standard, guidelines or framework document to the ACRL Board and at the same time, notified the committee or section that initiated the standard, guideline or framework

    • The ACRL Board either approves the standard, guideline or framework document or returns it for revision
