ACRL Board of Directors Approves New Guidelines for Primary Source Literacy
From the ACRL Insider:
Tne ACRL Board of Directors has approved new Guidelines for Primary Source Literacy. Developed by a joint ACRL/ RBMS and Society of American Archivists (SAA) task force, the new guidelines articulate the range of knowledge, skills, and abilities required to effectively use primary sources and are applicable in multiple primary source learning situations with diverse instructor roles, audiences, and purposes. While the primary audience for this document is librarians, archivists, teaching faculty, and others working with college and university students, the guidelines have been written to be sufficiently flexible for use in K-12 and in general public settings as well.
