Academic libraries and librarians are concerned with information literacy - helping their students with accessing, evaluating, and utilizing information. Strategies for this work have been researched, and evaluated, for years by the Association of College and Research Libraries, and its members. In 2016, the ACRL adopted the Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education to help guide the instruction and conversation related to information literacy.
One of the concepts contained within the Framework is "Scholarship as Conversation" which is the basis of this project. Understanding how a community of researchers, scholars and professionals engage around a particular topic or discipline can help foster new discoveries and insights. For students, seeking out this conversation and "ease-dropping" on various perspectives can help you find your own voice and gain the confidence to share your own ideas to keep innovation and discovery moving forward.
Included in the "Scholarship as Conversation" frame are example strategies and skills that students can develop, many of which will support your Book Review Project.
This guide will help you develop your books review and help you as you consider the following criteria.
