The information provided by this ACRL Student Learning & Information Literacy Committee resource will help academic librarians, faculty and other higher education personnel locate resources to both learn about the ACRL Framework and develop and develop effective information literacy (IL) effective programming. The Teaching and Learning Section is the most impactful area.  It provides information about proven assignments, lesson plans and activities and links to highly respected ACRL project resources such as: PRIMO: Peer Reviewed Instructional Materials Online; ACRL Instruction Section Tips & Trends, the Science Information Literacy Wiki, SOS Information Literacy and Project CORA.  The site's Teaching and Learning area also provides very helpful reading recommendationson information literacy assessment.

The links and provided information about collaboration and advocacy tips for faculty and administrator will also help enhance campus IL discussions and provide critical updates on ACRL information literacy student learning initiatives within the higher education community.  All of the site's materials are both informative and useful. When consistently kept up to date, the overall site will be very useful for those charged with staying on top of developing ACRL IL Framework issues and pedagogical directions.
