A Constellation To Guide Us: An Interview With Lisa Janicke Hinchliffe About The Framework For Information Literacy For Higher Education
Reference Services Review
Purpose: The purpose of this paper was to ask Lisa Janicke Hinchliffe, Professor/Coordinator for Information Literacy Services and Instruction in the University Library at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, about her views regarding the Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education. Design/methodology/approach: This is an interview. Findings: Hinchliffe believes that the Framework is one among many documents that academic librarians can and should use to promote information literacy. Research limitations/implications: Hinchliffe contradicts the opinion that the Framework and the Information Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education could not have co-existed. Practical implications: Hinchliffe offers librarians practical advice for moving from a Standards-based to a Framework-based information literacy program. Originality/value: Hinchliffe concludes that the old ways of fostering information literacy do not need to be rejected to adopt new practices.
