The purpose of this guide is to provide an overview of the Student Learning & Information Literacy Committee (SLILC), including programming, resources, and other related professional development opportunities. This guide serves as the official website for SLILC.
SLILC is a division-level committee, meaning that its goal and associated objectives are outlined in the ACRL's strategic plan - the Plan for Excellence. SLILC's goal and objectives are:
Goal: Advance equitable and inclusive pedagogical practices and environments for libraries to support student learning.
SLILC's charge is:
To oversee and implement ACRL’s Student Learning Initiative as described in the strategic plan. Work with the ACRL Board and other ACRL units to create a comprehensive approach to student learning and information literacy efforts including
SLILC partners with other units within ACRL and beyond. In many cases, our partners have ex-officio representation on SLILC. New partners might be added to address emerging topics, trends, or issues related to information literacy and student learning.
Members of SLILC were active in the development of the Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education and associated resources, such as the sandbox and the road show. As such, the Framework is integral to the work of SLILC.
