To advance AUBG mission for academic excellence, Panitza Library offers information literacy instruction to its community. This 21st century skill, which is no longer only an academia requirement, is offered to AUBG students of all majors.
Since 2016 Panitza Library has adopted the ACRL Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education. At its core, the Framework is “a cluster of interconnected core concepts, with flexible options for implementation, rather than a set of standards or learning outcomes, or any prescriptive enumeration of skills.” Final Booklet (Chicago: Association of College and Research Libraries, 2016)
In response to the new information environment and style of teaching and learning, ACRL has redefined information literacy to include and emphasize dynamism, flexibility, individual growth, and community learning:
Information literacy is the set of integrated abilities encompassing the reflective discovery of information, the understanding of how information is produced and valued, and the use of information in creating new knowledge and participating ethically in communities of learning.
