Standards, frameworks, and guidelines help us define and describe the work we do to ourselves and to external stakeholders. If budget decisions tell us what our priorities are, documents like the Framework for Information Literacy in Higher Education tell us what they should be. Integrating social justice into these documents can serve as a platform for directing attention and resources to our commitments around equity, diversity, and inclusion. The EBSS Social Work Committee has been hard at work developing an information literacy disciplinary framework that does just that. Join this committee and the Information Literacy Standards and Frameworks Committee to learn about this project. Participants will come away with concrete strategies for integrating social justice efforts with standards work.
