Jill Hallam-Miller, Nancy Frazier, and Ben Hoover (Bucknell University)
Research Services librarians at Bucknell University collaborated on a project to re-conceptualize the new Association of College & Research Libraries’ “Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education” to make the research concepts it represents accessible to students. We developed an open educational resource in the form of digital and physical posters that we shared with the academic library community at large.
The posters facilitate discussion about the research process in the classroom; faculty and librarians use poster content to clarify research concepts for students. We have received feedback from librarians at other institutions who are excited about using and modifying the posters. We have removed institutional borders by creating a repository for capturing ideas for reusing, remixing, and re-conceptualizing the posters to encourage continued development and improvement of the project, opening pathways for librarians, instructional technologists, and faculty to collaborate on student-centered information literacy instruction.
