Fashioning the Framework

The Fall 2021 Art Documentation carries an article by Laura B. Thompson, a cataloger and music librarian at Central Michigan University on the topic of information literacy for Fashion Studies.

Abstract: The discipline of fashion studies has recently developed as a subject of critical academic study. As a result, information literacy instruction for these programs has become increasingly important. The ACRL Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education provides general guidance for this instruction but, as with other performance, art, or design-oriented disciplines, it requires considerable contextualization. For fashion studies, discussions about disciplinary context have been limited, especially as they concern the ACRL Framework. This article provides a brief overview of the Framework and discusses issues of interdisciplinarity in fashion studies and applications of each frame from design and practice-based perspectives.
