The draft Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education which will replace the Information Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education (= ACRL information literacy standards) has been published.

The current document contains the Introduction and Three Threshold Concepts plus a Glossary and Bibliography. In early April they will also release Additional Threshold Concepts and Sample Scenarios.

The document can be sourced at and is open for comment until April 15.  Apparently feedback is welcome from people worldwide.

Whilst the primary target for these standards is in North America, the ACRL standards have been very influential worldwide.
