Welcome to the New Literacies Alliance

The New Literacies Alliance is a dynamic consortial curricular project led by librarians from multiple institutions across the United States.

Our purpose is to address the new literacies required for academic success and lifelong learning in a cutting-edge online learning platform that allows students to master skills at their own pace.

Our hope is to collaborate with other institutions to create a common curriculum, based on characteristics of the ACRL Information Literacy Framework (and related) standards, to use as a leveling platform for library and research instruction.

We Make Things

On this site, you will find the lessons we made. They have been written about in the ACRL Instruction Section blog (twice) and the School Library Journal blog.

They can help you in the fight to bring information literacy skills to your students.

They are free, open education resources. View the lessons. Review some suggested sequences. Read about the different ways to access the lessons. Then, request the links you want or maybe, you will decide to help us make more things.
