In 2015, the Association of College & Research Libraries established a new Information Literacy Framework for Higher Education. The Framework includes six core concepts, or frames, also known as “threshold” concepts. These concepts act as gateways to understanding information literacy. The six frames are:

  • Authority Is Constructed and Contextual
  • Information Creation as a Process
  • Information Has Value
  • Research as Inquiry
  • Scholarship as Conversation
  • Searching as Strategic Exploration
