Reshaping Library Instruction within Art & Design Education: Experimenting and implementing the Info Lit Framework
The Academic and College Research Libraries (ACRL) Framework for Information Literacy, released in February 2015, gives instruction librarians a new opportunity to emphasize the natural connection between the library and the creative and academic work  of art students, artists, and scholars. This panel will explore the ways that instruction librarians are experimenting with and implementing the new Framework and threshold concepts in the art school/program environment.  It will ask: How are art and design librarians interpreting this document within the context of their community and connecting the conceptual Framework to their pedagogical practices?

Presenters will share their unique approaches to working with the new ACRL Framework, which includes emphasizing visual literacy, developing teaching tools and resources, and creating learning opportunities, in hopes that attendees will find valuable takeaways and ideas. This session will be particularly relevant to art librarians with an interest in information literacy instruction in higher education.
