The Information Literacy Best Practices Committee of the ACRL Instruction Section has been charged with revising the current Characteristics of Programs of Information Literacy that Illustrate Best Practices: A Guideline. The subcommittee has completed the task of revising this document, and are now ready to receive feedback on this revision. Major changes in the revision include updates reflecting the move from the Information Literacy Standards to the new Framework for Information Literacy. Also, an effort was made to streamline the document and to focus on its potential purposes and uses.

The Task Force invites feedback on the draft by Friday, April 28.
