Call for Chapters
The Information Literacy Framework: Case Studies of Successful Implementation
Chapter proposals are invited to this volume, to be published by Rowman & Littlefield as part of the ALISE Book Series. The book will be edited by Heidi Julien (University at Buffalo), and Melissa Gross and Don Latham (Florida State University). The book’s working title is “The Information Literacy Framework: Case Studies of Successful Implementation.” It is intended to help demystify how to incorporate ACRL’s Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education into information literacy instruction in higher education as well as how to teach the new Framework to pre-service librarians as part of their professional preparation. The book will bring together:
Individual chapters will describe how a library is implementing the Framework, or how the Framework is being taught to pre-service librarians. Chapters will focus on successes, while acknowledging challenges. Authors are expected to be reflective and tie their narratives to existing literature and to theory. Instructional librarians, administrators, educators, and students will benefit from the experiences of the people on the ground who are actively working to make the transition to the Framework in their professional practice.
Chapter proposals (approx. 500 words) are due August 1, 2018. Authors will be notified by September 1, 2018 whether their proposal has been selected for expansion to a full chapter. Full chapters will be about 5000 words in length, and will be due March 1, 2019.
Send chapter proposals to: Heidi Julien (firstname.lastname@example.org).
