Abstract

Connecting the Institutional Repository to the Framework for Information Literacy

Scholarly communication and information literacy as foci of librarianship are readily integrated and the connection between the two is well established. Both consider research as a process that starts before and continues well past the point of publication or citation. They each incorporate critical thinking about information sources, authority, context, format, and more. Institutional repositories and the ACRL Framework are robust tools for scholarly communication and information literacy, respectively. This poster demonstrates how one common element of scholarly communication - the institutional repository - is a conduit to the concepts of the Framework for Information Literacy. Learners' contributions to the repository, assignment of keywords to their own works, discovery and evaluation of resources held in repositories, and other activities provide a unique opportunity to encounter each of the conceptual frames.
