Frame Works: Using Metaphor in Theory and Practice in Information Literacy
Holliday, Wendy
Communications in Information Literacy, v11 n1 p4-20 2017
The ACRL Framework for Information Literacy in Higher Education generated a large amount of discourse during its development and adoption. All of this discourse is rich in metaphoric language that can be used as a tool for critical reflection on teaching and learning, information literacy, and the nature and role of theory in the practice of teaching librarians. This article explores the metaphoric entailments of the Framework as a way to deepen our understandings and practices of information literacy.
