Welcome to the AASL/ACRL Information Literacy Toolkit!


This wiki provides resources for helping K12 and higher education connect, collaborate, and articulate information literacy competencies.


For students to succeed academically and in life, they need to be information literate: having the ability to locate, select, evaluate, use, manage, communicate, and generate information.
Librarians are information professionals who provide physical and intellectual access to information. PK-20 librarians, in particular, serve as knowledgeable facilitators in helping students and staff become effective users and generators of information. In addition, as information professionals, PK-12 and post-secondary librarians can facilitate the articulation of information literacy as they collaborate with each other and their institutional faculty.
This toolkit, therefore, provides strategies and resources to strengthen articulated relationships and build information literacy capacity for all stakeholders.
