The NNLM National Training Office invites you to a one-hour webinar, titled “Teaching Topics: Get in the Picture – ACRL Framework and You”, about the ACRL Framework for Information Literacy and its impact on health sciences libraries. The Framework replaced ACRL’s Information Literacy Competency Standards (2000) in May, 2016. How are we responding? Five librarians offer their perspectives. If time allows, discussion and sharing among participants will be included.

The webinar will take place on Wednesday, April 26, from 12:00 to 1:00 PM CST. To register, go here. A list of presenters, and the topics they will cover, is below.
