Subject: Information Literacy in the Disciplines

From: Beth Ashmore [mailto:[log in to unmask]]

The Teaching Methods Committee of the ACRL Instruction Section is pleased to
announce the launching of a new Internet resource: The Information Literacy
in the Disciplines website -

This resource is designed to assist librarians and teaching faculty in the
integration of information literacy into the disciplines.
The resource contains links and citations to information literacy standards
and curricula developed by accrediting agencies, professional associations,
and institutions of higher education. Organized by discipline, each page is
separated into two sections: 1) Standards or Guidelines from Accrediting
Agencies & Professional Associations and 2) Curricula, Articles, and
Presentations. It is our hope that these standards, guidelines and other
materials will assist librarians when approaching teaching faculty about the
further integration of information literacy skills into their discipline.

In order to make this website a success, we need your help in identifying
standards from accrediting organizations and professional associations as
well as articles and curricula that address the need for information
literacy integration into specific disciplines. Send your suggestions of
additions to the website to Beth Ashmore, [log in to unmask] The
committee will review all suggestions according to the project's criteria
for inclusion
